About Loveland, Colorado
Loveland is situated 46 miles north of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. Loveland is the 14th most populous city in Colorado. The United States Census Bureau estimated that in 2010 the population of the city of Loveland was 66,859. The city forms part of the Fort Collins-Loveland Metropolitan Statistical Area and the Front Range Urban Corridor. The city’s public schools are part of the Thompson R2-J School District.
The city was founded in 1877 along the newly constructed line of the Colorado Central Railroad, near its crossing of the Big Thompson River. It was named in honor of William A.H. Loveland, the president of the Colorado Central Railroad. The city was founded one mile upstream from the existing small settlement of St. Louis, the buildings of which were moved to the site of Loveland. For the first half of the 20th century the town was dependent on agriculture. The primary crops in the area were sugar beets and sour cherries. In 1901, the Great Western Sugar Company built a factory in Loveland, which remained as a source of employment until its closure in 1985. During the late 1920s the Spring Glade orchard was the largest cherry orchard west of the Mississippi River. At that time the cherry orchards produced more than $1 million worth of cherries per year. A series of droughts, attacks of blight and finally a killer freeze destroyed the industry. By 1960 cherries were no longer farmed. In the late 20th century, the economy diversified with the arrival of manufacturing facilities by Hewlett-Packard, Teledyne, and Hach, a water quality analysis equipment manufacturer. A new medical center has added a substantial amount of employment in that sector as well.
On September 10, 2013 a historic flood affected numerous areas in Colorado. It rained heavily for 4 consecutive days, causing most rivers and creeks to overfill their banks. Estes Park received 8-12 inches of rain, causing Lake Estes to overfill its banks. This prompted a lot of water to be released out of the dam causing the Big Thompson River to swell. The flooding River caused sections of U.S. Highway 34 to collapse. Route 34 is one of the main highways from Loveland to Estes Park. The Big Thompson caused major flooding in Loveland, and caused numerous road closures because of flood waters. The Loveland/Fort Collins area received about 4 inches, which is relatively less significant compared to the amount of rain other places received. This flood is being called a 500 year flood. Two people were killed in the floods from the Cedar Cove neighborhood in the Big Thompson River Canyon.
