Between 1970 and 1980, Thornton was the fastest growing of all Colorado municipalities and the city continues to actively seek new industry for the area. Just north of Denver, the area began in the 1950's as a moderately priced community giving young couples a chance to own their own homes. Today's home prices, however, range from moderate to expensive with many developers taking advantage of the panoramic views available in this community.
