GREELEY
Colorado, U.S.A.
HOME TO UNIVERSITY OF NORTHERN COLORADO
Welcome to Greeley, Colorado.
Greeley is a city in Weld County, situated around 49 miles northeast of Denver. It is the 12th most populous city in the state, with around 98,600 residents. The city is nestled at the confluence of the South Platte and Chache la Poudre Rivers, and was originally an agricultural community with some of the first successful irrigated farmland in the country. Today, Greeley is still a strong farming community and consistently ranks as one of the top 10 agricultural producing counties in the nation. Greeley was named after a man named Horace Greeley, a New York newspaperman who persuaded young Americans to Go West. The early Union Colonists of the area created a vision of a western utopia with tree-lined streets, wide enough to turn a wagon around completely. History buffs can visit the Centennial Village Museum, where on 5.5 acres you'll find vintage homes, a church, schoolhouse and several other historic structures dating back to the early Greeley settlement. Also worth stopping by is the historic home of the pioneer Nathan Meeker, who has been credited as the town's founder, as well as the 1835 Fort Vasquez. The City of Greeley is also home to the University of Northern Colorado, a beautiful historic institution from 1889. The university is well known for its teacher education, but also its prominent business, performing arts and nursing programs. The school draws guest artists and speakers from all over the country, and each spring the city holds one of America's largest jazz festivals.
