“Built on What Matters”, Frederick is a booming place, located almost 30 miles north of Downtown Denver on I-25. It offers a lot of convenience for its residents to explore the northern front range and capital city.
Part of Weld County, Frederick had a population of 8,709 in 2010 and an estimated one of 13,960 in 2010. Over the past decade people have really filled in the northern front range urban corridor between Fort Collins and Denver.
Frederick sits at an elevation of 4,984. It was incorporated on December 26th, 1907.
The town had its roots in coal mining. The mine owner gave the name of McKissick to the camp before being renamed after a land owner, Fredrick A. Clark. Immigrants from Europe and Latin America worked in the Frederick Coal Mine until it shut its doors in 1928.
Frederick updated its image in 2014 by releasing a new town logo, which had a gas lamp on a mountain background. They also picked their motto, “built on what matters.”
