Overview

Introduction to Loveland, Colorado

Loveland, Colorado, in Larimer county, is 45 miles N of Denver, Colorado. It is part of the surrounding Fort Collins - Loveland metro area.

Loveland History

Loveland was founded in 1877. The community was named in honor of the president of the Colorado Central Railroad, William A.H. Loveland. Agriculture was the primary occupation in this area until the first half of the 20th century. Sugar beets and sour cherries were grown in this region. However, a series of droughts destroyed the cherry orchards in Loveland. Manufacturing facilities arrived in the city in the later part of the 20th century. According to an AllBusiness study in 2006, Loveland was the 8th best metro area for women entrepreneurs in the country.
