HistoryPrior to the revision of Jefferson County street names in 1949, Tabor Street was named Lees Lane for the David Lee Family who built a home there. Lees Station on the Leyden and Golden Tramway ticket was also named for David Lee who gave the right-of-way for the station. The current name for this thoroughfare is Tabor Street, named for Horace Tabor, Lieutenant Governor of Colorado from 1879 to 1883.
