Ford-Warren Library The Ford-Warren branch of the Denver Public Library is a popular place in the neighborhood. The branch is named after two people, Dr. Justina L. Ford and Bishop Henry White Warren. Ford was Colorado's first African-American female physician. The Black American West Museum & Heritage Center is located in Dr. Ford's former residence. Warren was a Methodist Bishop who was married to Elizabeth Iliff Warren. Together, they founded the Iliff School of Theology and were instrumental in supporting the development of the University of Denver.
