History: Past: Hans Bucher immigrated from Switzerland in 1735 and built a log cabin on a 325-acre tract of land. The area later was called bBucher Thalb meaning Bucherbs Valley. The present farmhouse at 325 Locust Street, which was built around 1855, replaced the original log cabin. During the late 1700s, rich meadows embraced nearly the entire region. Farming was the chief occupation, although there also was an early mill and by 1774 a blacksmith shop. Other industries followed including a lime manufacturer, weaverbs loom, cobbler shop and in 1840, a quarry operation. A railroad station was built in the late 1800s and soon tradesmen began to locate in the area. A post office was established in 1868 in the depot.B The settlement was called bUnion Station.b In 1881, with people tiring of being referred to as a railroad station, 19 year old Adam G. Brubaker examined the records of the post offices in the country and found only one with the name of Denver. The name of the area was officially changed to Denver on November 1, 1881. On September 4, 1900, Denver officially incorporated as a Borough and elected the first Borough officials on October 9, 1900. A volunteer fire company was organized on April 16, 1902.
