HISTORY

Greenwood Village, Colorado in 1815 was a gathering place for French trappers and Arapaho, Cheyenne, Kiowa and other Indian tribes who held a rendezvous on Bear Creek, a few miles northwest of Greenwood Village. Among the early settlers to Greenwood Village was John Melvin, who came to Colorado from Connecticut in 1859. He purchased 320 acres along Cherry Creek. During that time, a steady stream of covered wagons made their way across the Smoky Hill Trail, which followed the Smoky Hill River across Kansas and wound its way northwest towards Denver.

By the early 1900s, the Greenwood Village area thrived with orchards of cherry, apple, apricot, plum and pear trees. During the early and mid 1900s Greenwood Village was also an area rich with farms, dairies, gravel roads and a population of 500 residents. A Colorado pioneer named Rufus Clark bought 160 acres of land along the Platte River. Clark raised potatoes and eventually acquired 20,000 acres of land, including much of Greenwood Village east of Holly Street.

Another pioneer named Cyrus G. Richardson ran the Greenwood Ranch. An 1899 farm map showed Greenwood Ranch with eight reservoirs stretching from Steele Street and Stanford Avenue on the northwest to Garden Avenue and approximately Dahlia Street on the southeast. The northern half of the old Greenwood Ranch included Glenmoor of Cherry Hills Village and the southern half-included Horseshoe Park and The Preserve in Greenwood Village.

In September of 1950, an election was held to incorporate Greenwood Village as a town. Greenwood Village was named after Cyrus Richardson’s “Greenwood Ranch.” Over the years, Greenwood Village has grown from a rural community to a dynamic blend of urban and residential community along with a nationally recognized business parks to help the community to grow.
