Louisville, CO Real Estate

Louisville has consistently been named one of the top 100 places to live in the US by CNN's Money Magazine because of its hometown atmosphere in a progressive community.

In the 1870s, coal miners were attracted to Louisville, in part because it was a democratic community that was not owned and controlled by a single mining company. Louisville features a highly educated population, diverse business profile and small town ambiance. If you become one of the residents of Louisville, you'll enjoy the Colorado lifestyle with nearly 1700 acres of open space, a vital old town/downtown and easy access to nearby cultural amenities. Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley School Districts offer stellar education and progressive schooling.

With the dry, clear weather, low crime, below average unemployment rates, good health care, and low taxes, it's easy to understand Louisville's number one status in the country.

History

With the opening of the Welch Mine in 1877, Louisville began to take shape. Within a couple of years, many other coal mines were launched and the Town of Louisville was incorporated in 1882. Unlike other coal mining towns that were controlled by a single local mining company, Louisville’s residents enjoyed a democratic community and worked for a variety of mines.

Over the years, thirty different mines operated in Louisville. The Acme Mine produced almost two million tons of coal from mines located directly below the town that exists today. Demand for coal dwindled after World War II ended and the last of the local Louisville mines closed in 1952.
