Greeley was named for Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune who came to Colorado in the 1859 Pike’s Peak Gold Rush and urged young Americans to “Go West” during the historic era. The city of Greeley was one of the first planned communities in the United States. Located approximately 50 miles northeast of Denver at the confluence of the South Platte and Cache la Poudre Rivers, Greeley was first envisioned as a western utopia with gorgeous tree-lined streets wide enough to turn a wagon with full hitch.
Today, Greeley is a vibrant city that features fantastic parks, museums, theaters and galleries. It is home to the Union Colony Civic Center, one of the largest performing arts venues in Colorado. Greeley is also home to University of Northern Colorado, Aims Community College, Academy of Natural Therapy and Institute of Business & Medical Careers. The university draws an array of guest artists and speakers who brighten the cultural landscape. Each spring, one of the nation's largest jazz festivals has the whole town tapping its toes; the Greeley Blues Jam, a 5-time winner of the Colorado Blues Society Favorite Festival award comes to town in early summer; and The Greeley Independence Stampede, a 10+ day festival held at Island Grove Regional Park that is one of the largest Fourth of July rodeo, concert and activity events in the country.
Whether you are already retired or planning for it, the Village Cooperative of Greeley is a fantastic option for those who want independent living— one that fosters a sense of pride of ownership, control, social opportunities and fun.
