The community of Ivywild was first established in 1888. William B. Jenkins, a miner and rancher, subdivided his ranch and created 43 lots. He named the neighborhood after his wife, Annie. She was a stockholder in the Ramona Mining Company and her father owned the first hotel in the town, the La Font. By 1892, the town had a post office.
The city of Ivywild is located south of downtown Colorado Springs. The neighborhood sits along Cheyenne Creek. This area was once home to the Cheyenne tribe who built tepees at the confluence of Cheyenne Creek and Fountain Creek. Eventually, settlers Irving Howbert and John Wolfe settled along the creek.
The median real estate price in Ivywild is $384,184. This is higher than the national average of 63.9%. Rents in Ivywild are relatively low, at $1,612 per month. Compared to most neighborhoods in Colorado, these prices are still below average. This may indicate a future price increase and the addition of new construction.
