Featured Community | Wheat Ridge

History of Wheat Ridge

Wheat Ridge first established roots during the Gold Rush of 1859. The city served as a rest stop for miners headed to mountain gold camps. It was later incorporated as a city in 1970 and given the name Wheat Ridge for the golden ridges of wheat noted by travelers passing through. Unsuccessful miners returned to the area and began farming the rich, fertile soil, helping the community grow. Wheat fields were converted to fruit orchards and vegetable fields, attracting buyers from all across the Denver area. Eventually the fruit and vegetable farming gave way to greenhouses and the largest production of carnations in the world. This earned Wheat Ridge the nickname of “Carnation City.”

Community

Wheat Ridge embodies the deep roots of a city with a rich history and strong sense of community. Its central location provides short commutes to major interstate highways, the majestic Rocky Mountains, and the amenities of Denver.  The easy access to I-70 means you can be skiing, hiking or participating in a wide range of mountain sports in less than an hour.

While it’s a quiet community, there are currently strong efforts to make the city a more vibrant and active community. More and more new and trendy businesses are choosing to call Wheat Ridge home, including Brewery Rickoli, Right Coast Pizza, and Colorado Plus Brew Pub. The city even has it’s own Farmer’s Market! Yoga in the park, weekly cruiser crawls, and ride-in movies have all become common place in the past few years. It’s also home to over 20 parks, public spaces, and equestrian trails.
