This town is one of many small towns in Colorado that is a short commute to Denver – Boulder – Ft Collins while offering space to settle your family.
An interesting historical fact: Incorporated in 1907, the Town of Frederick began as a coal mining town attracting immigrants from Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, several Slavic countries and Latin America. The Frederick Coal mine closed in 1928.
In 2014 the town ‘re-branded’ by designing a logo that is a stylized gas lamp with a mountain range background, and adopting the tag line “Built on What Matters”. Prior to the re-branding the town primarily used the seal as a logo on town vehicles and letterhead.
