Juchem Lane

Address: Extended from W. 44th Ave. to Ridge Rd., west to Independence St. and north to W. 58th Ave., Juchem Lane is now part of Garrison St., Ridge Rd., West Rd., and Independence St.

This thoroughfare was first named for pioneer John Juchem, who came from Prussia to Colorado in 1859. He settled in the Arvada area in the 1860s and farmed his 400 acres acquired from three land grants. He contributed the right-of-way for the Denver and Interurban Tramway to Golden and the Colorado and Southern Railroad to be built on his property. Juchem Tramway Station was located at West Fifty-first Avenue where Juchem Lane (now Garrison Street) crossed the tracks. John Juchem also donated land for the Arvada Cemetery.
