A unique mid-century modern offering in Denver’s Harvey Park neighborhood were the Carey “Holiday Homes,” designed by Denver architecture firm Baume & Polivnick and built by real estate developer Lou Carey. The Holiday Homes were built in two phases: the original houses, started in 1954, were built along Vrain Street and Utica Street, north of Evans Avenue, and garnered recognition regionally from Parents’ Magazine in 1954 for being the “Best Home for Families.”

The second phase of Holiday Homes, built along Raleigh Street and surrounding blocks south of the park were larger and better-appointed, targeting young executives in their advertising.
