Biographical / Historical
The Five Points Community Center opened on July 21, 1974 at 2855 Tremont Place. The community center included Five Points Library, a satellite location of the Denver Public Library's Ford-Warren branch. The Center closed in 2001 after the City of Denver took possession of the building it had been leasing to the Five Points Community Center. Rebuilding the Five Points Community Center was considered as part of the Better Denver Bond Program of 2007. The building became a municipal building and Denver Motor Vehicle office in 2013 and was later named for Denver City Councilwoman Elbra M. Wedgeworth.
