Globeville was established on ranch land purchased by the Globe Smelter Company. Slavic workers are known to have been settled there by 1885. Their narrow frame houses, with steep roofs that form the walls of small second-floor rooms, still abound.
Other smelters and packing houses were also located nearby, and these attracted more workers to Globeville, which was within walking distance. By 1910 much of the present community had taken shape and had been annexed by Denver to the South.
