- Formed in 1948 by University of Denver faculty as a housing cooperative insuring single-family dwellings. The first federal housing authority. Members included Congressman Byron L.

Eugene Sternberg served as senior architect and Professor C. Howard Miller as associate. In the late 1980s, members chose to move away from the cooperative association model and dissolve. Members exchanged shares in the association for warranty deeds for their homes. In 1989 the Mile High Housing Association reincorporated as the South Dahlia Lane Community.
