Saulsbury Street

Address: From Ralston Rd. S. to Grandview Ave., Arvada

Christian and Mary Stocke (pronounced Sto-key) moved to Arvada in 1904 and built the beautiful brick house at 7011 Grandview Avenue. Mr. Stocke built the first north-south street east of Wadsworth, which was then known as Stocke Avenue. Prior to the Jefferson County revision of street names in 1949, this street was known at different times as Third Street, Cherry Street, and Cedar Street. Since 1949, this street has been known as Saulsbury Street for Willard Saulsbury, who represented Delaware in the United States Senate, 1859-1871.
