Random Colorado Location #12 Greeley

816817w

I had only been to Greeley one time before this trip.  It’s the largest city in Colorado that is not located along the interstate.  Apparently Greeley didn’t want to lose the agricultural land and chose not to have the interstate run near it.  The agricultural influence is evident everywhere.

Greeley has a long history in Colorado.  It was established in 1869 as a utopian community based on seven principals faith, family, education, irrigation, temperance, agriculture, home.  Greeley became a city in 1889.
