Welcome to the Near North End (NNE), a diverse and thriving urban neighborhood located directly north of downtown Colorado Springs. We strive for a mutual community among residents, business owners, landlords, and students. Our neighborhood has wonderful amenities of all kinds within walking distance, including parks, restaurants, boutiques, museums, performing arts centers, sports facilities, and much more.

The NNE was the first annexation to Colorado Springs. The neighborhood has a significant presence on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Weber/Wahsatch District, Boulder Crescent District, Monument Valley Park, and eight other historic buildings.

What We Care About

  • Identifying, preserving, and celebrating historic homes, businesses, and buildings.
  • Preserving and improving the streetscape, particularly the historical medians, parkways, and canopy trees.
  • Improving safety and protecting living conditions for neighborhood residents.

The Near North End Neighborhood Association has been working hard to advocate for our historic neighborhood this past year. For updates and ways to get involved, join us at our annual NNE meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb 22 via Zoom and in person at the McAllister House Museum located at 423 N. Cascade Ave.  We will meet in the carriage house behind the museum, and refreshments will be served! Parking and access to the carriage house will be from the alley. 

Our agenda includes what we accomplished this year, an update on city initiatives, the NNE’s goals for 2023, a Q&A, and board elections. We’re always looking for neighbors willing to serve as board members or to be on committees, so email us if you’re interested in getting involved!

The highlight of the evening will be a talk by Eric Metzger, Executive Director of the McAllister House Museum.  Afterward, Eric will take us for a short tour of the McAllister House.
