Historically, Longmont was named after Long's Peak, the 14er that is visible from town. Longmont had a strange start, with a group of Chicago men settling, then selling memberships for this town and naming it the "Chicago-Colorado Colony". The money from this went to purchasing 60,000 acres of surrounding land.


Located northeast of Boulder, Longmont has an agricultural spirit and has a large craft beverage industry. It hosts two of Colorado's largest craft brewers, as well as nine more breweries. Additionally, there are lakes, trails, farmers markets and coffee shops. This town is family friendly, with good schools and a strong sense of community that is only getting stronger. It is close to the mountains, yet more affordable than Boulder.  


Longmont's current population is 95,000 and it is developing rapidly and will continue to grow.
