Introduction to Sheridan, Colorado
Sheridan is a municipality located in the Arapahoe county. It was initially called Petersburg, after an influential farmer who bought 160 acres of land in the area. However, the town was given its present name from General Sheridan who established Fort Logan. John McBroom was among the earliest settlers in this city; the city owes it layout to McBroom's brother, Isaac. The town was incorporated into the state in 1890. Sheridan flourished because of the military post in the area, but this was shut down later and a mental health facility center was built in its city.
