- St. Elizabeth's, the second oldest church in the Denver area, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Established by Franciscan friars and nuns in 1878, the beautiful stone landmark is located in downtown Denver on the Auraria campus, facing the west bank of Cherry Creek. The most striking architectural feature of the design is the arcade that curves around the courtyard holding a statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the leader of the Franciscan order. The building now serves as a chapel for the Auraria campus.
