HistoryChristian and Mary Stocke moved to Arvada and built the large brick home at 7011 Grandview Avenue in 1904. Stocke, a German immigrant from Ohio, arrived in Arvada in 1902 and built the first north-south street east of Wadsworth, which was originally called Stocke Avenue (Saulsbury). He also built a well that supplied houses on Stocke Avenue with water. This two-story, 2330 square-foot two-chimney home has been well preserved, over the years. The house has been painted white, fish scaling porch across the front, balustrade above the porch roof, wrought iron fence across front, Palladian motif window with central arched window flanked by two flat arch windows, and oval side windows on each side of the front door. At one time this was the home of Ann Jackson, Arvada's first woman mayor.
