Situated along Northern Colorado’s front range, Greeley is the most populated city and county seat of Weld County. The population was around 107,000 residents in 2018.
It’s started out as a farming town and continues that legacy today, however technology has kept up with the town today. There’s a myth that when you smell manure in the air in Denver, there’s a storm coming that’s blowing air from Greeley.
The town was founded as Union Colony in 1869, an experimental utopian society, but later named after Horace Greeley, editor of the New-York Tribune, whom came to the area in 1859 during the gold rush.
