Denver is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. Located at an official elevation of exactly 1 mile above sea level, it is the highest major city in the United States.

The city volcanically evolved on the world map courtesy a gold and silver boom in late 19th century, and later played a strategic role as it hosted a former nuclear weapons plant (Rocky Flats) and administrative centers like the Denver Federal Center and Byron G. Rogers Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse.
