The History of Broomfield Colorado

As part of our Broomfield Real Estate series, today we are highlighting Broomfield, CO.

With a storied history spanning over 100 years, there is a lot to tell. The City and County of Broomfield is an amazing home for its residents and always has been.

Broomfield started as a farming community in the late 1800’s and actually came into existence in 1885 when Adolph Zang bought the The History of Broomfield Colorado land around 120th Avenue and Olde Wadsworth Boulevard. The train stop was called Zang’s Spur, which referred to the spur off of the main line. The railroad brought more people and wealth. Locally grown grain was loaded there for delivery to Zang Brewing Co. in Denver. Zang eventually acquired 4,000 acres of land for the Elmwood Stock Farm where he bred Percheron horses, and tended fruit orchards.

At the turn of the century, Broomfield was just a small town comprised of grain elevators, a general store, band and a few other businesses that were supported by local farmers. Eventually the Crescent Grange, formed in 1898, petitioned for a postal service and brought in other businesses. By the end of World War II the surrounding farm areas started to be developed into housing tracts. The city was planned, though, to keep growth manageable.

Other parts of its history include the Rocky Mountains, the Louisiana Purchase (Colorado was part of it), a gold and silver rush and native American tribes like the Apaches, Cheyenne and Arapaho.
