Eastern Colorado is built around the long-time history of small towns, originally built during the railroad development in the late 1800s through the early 1900s. The “Front Range” as it is known to locals has been one of Colorado’s most important agricultural areas in the State and continue to produce important field crops such as wheat, corn and hay. In more recent times, the plains and towns like Strasburg, Byers, Bennett, Deer Trail and Watkins have become commuter towns as they have easy access to Aurora and Denver as well as Denver’s International Airport. Although the growth of our rural communities continues to climb, small town living can still be had. From small condo and home communities to large ranches with acreage there is a piece of the plains for everyone.
