Historical Note

Excerpt from Parker Newcomers Club website:

"Our club was founded in 1973 by Liel Graham and presently has 200 members from all over the world. The mission of this organization is to provide new friendships, a variety of activities, pleasant social contact, and a welcome to the women of Parker and the surrounding counties. There are numerous activities and interest groups for all. Parker began as a one-room shack on Cherry Creek in 1860 and served as the Twenty-Mile stage stop, being 20 miles from the center of Denver. You can see the exact location on the corner of Dransfeldt Road and Main Street where a memorial statue of a stage coach stands. This shack grew into a ten room Inn and became a major stop for the railroad in 1882 under James Sample Parker. It incorporated in 1981 with a population of 285. Today, Parker has over 45,000 residents and provides a marvelous rural setting among the rolling plains of Colorado and is the 18th most populous municipality in the state." - Liz Johnson, President 2010-2011.
