Wheat Ridge

Wheat Ridge City is the gem inside the Greater Colorado communities. West Ridge is bordered by Arvada, Lakeside, Denver, Edgewater, Lakewood, Applewood, Fairmont, and Mountain View. Geographically north, east, southeast, south, southwest, and northwest. Although Wheat Ridge is relatively new, it existed as an agricultural town; and a rest stop during the Gold Rush era of the 1950s. Travelers would utilize the services the Town had to offer on their way to hopes of riches. 

As one of the Home Rule Municipalities in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, Wheat Ridge grew from a rest stop Town to a developed commercial, housing, and utility services. Eventually, due to the increasing annexation pressure from nearby municipalities, Wheat Ridge, Colorado was incorporated in 1969.
