Discover Diversity and Fun in Longmont
In 1820, Major Stephen H. Long gazed upon the magnificence of the unbridled land spread before him, particularly struck by the 14,256 foot peak which dominated the view. Later, in 1871, members of the "Chicago Colorado Colony" purchased 50,000 acres along the St. Vrain River, near the old Burlington stage stop, and founded Longmont. The first settlers picked a bluff directly east of Longs Peak for the town site and named the town after the peak.
Longmont lies peacefully under the protective shadow of Longs Peak. The town grew with pioneers molded from sound stock and strong morals. It became a hub for farming activities; sugar beets, alfalfa, beans, potatoes and peas were raised in the valley. The Great Western Sugar Factory manufactured sugar from sugar beets, and the Empson cannery processed vegetables.
Business Development in Longmont
Today, it is the second largest city in Boulder County, with over 87,000 people occupying over 20 square miles in the northeast portion of the county. A warm and friendly town, it is still growing, and boasts of some impressive credentials. Being in the heart of Colorado's Technological Corridor, it draws start-up businesses as well as relocating established businesses because of the small town atmosphere and close proximity to the University of Colorado.
Just Plain Fun
It has a growing retail base of new department stores, restaurants and professional services. The community boasts public events year-round, from rodeos to fairs, including the Boulder County Fair each summer. The city has a strong commitment to local parks and recreation and is continuing to expand natural areas for its residents and visitors. The desire to live in one area where you can work, live and shop without leaving the city limits has drawn many newcomers. For additional information visit their website at youbelonginlongmont.com.
