About Greeley

Greeley, Colorado, named after Horace Greeley, the editor of the New York Tribune, was founded as an experimental utopian community in 1869. The city was planned and designed with a grid system that included wide streets to accommodate freight wagons and agricultural equipment. This layout facilitated the transportation of goods and produce, making Greeley a hub for trade and commerce in northern Colorado.

As the city grew, the railroad played a crucial role in its development and prosperity. The Denver and Interurban Railroad, later known as the Union Pacific Railroad, established a depot in Greeley in the late 1800s, connecting the city to major markets and facilitating the transportation of goods to and from the region. The railroad not only boosted the local economy but also contributed to the expansion of industries such as agriculture, manufacturing, and mining in Greeley.

Today, Greeley remains a vital transportation hub in Colorado, with a well-connected network of highways, including US Route 85 and State Highway 34, facilitating the movement of freight and goods throughout the region. The city's strategic location, situated between Denver and Cheyenne, Wyoming, makes it an ideal distribution center for businesses looking to reach markets in the Rocky Mountain region. Greeley's transportation infrastructure continues to support the local economy and drive growth in industries such as agriculture, energy, and logistics.
