Though the Arapaho Indians settled in Denver first, a Kansas politician, General William H. Larimer "claim-jumped" his way in on the area and officially organized and named the town Denver in November 1858. The city was named after the Governor of Kansas, James W. Denver. General Larimer named the town after the governor to earn favor within the political circle. While Larimer's scheme did not work as planned, the city of Denver quickly took on more character and began to grow. With its growth, Larimer and a few others began to name the unbuilt streets after themselves. Charles Lawrence was quick to lend his name to the road running parallel to Larimer Street. These two streets later becoming the supplier you now know as Lawrence And Larimer.
