A look back in time; the original Carey Homes brochure . . .
I love historic artifacts like these! This is a copy of the original brochure for this section of Harvey Park and the Carey Home Plans 403, 404 (this model), and 405. The 404 was not actually pictured in the brochure, but it was the 403 plan with a covered patio added in front, and the garage pushed forward in front of the house to protect the patio.

There were close to 20 home builders working in Harvey Park during the 1950s, but among those, four companies built most of the homes in the neighborhood: Hutchinson Homes, Burns Construction, Ensor Homes, and Carey Construction. Developer Lou Carey was one of the larger local home builders in the city during the 1950s and ’60s, and was involved in University Hills, Mar Lee Manor as well as developments in Aurora, Littleton, Sheridan, Broomfield, and more. Carey also built custom homes, such as the Phibbs House in Arvada, and was one of the first builders in the city to boldly commit to building an entirely modern line of homes starting in 1954 called the Carey “Holiday Homes,” which were built in two series in Harvey Park and were designed by Denver architect Norton Polivnick. 4155 W Iliff Avenue is an example of the Executive Model series of Carey Holiday Homes.
2093 S Tennyson Street is an all-brick ranch home built in 1956 by Carey Construction Co.
