What does the name Stapleton mean to you? Maybe you associate it with Denver's old airport, which is now a neighborhood. Enough people in that neighborhood connected the name to the Ku Klux Klan, that there was a vote whether to keep it. Stapleton is named for former Denver mayor and KKK member Benjamin Stapleton. And by a vote of roughly 65 to 35 percent, property owners in Stapleton decided to stick with the name.
