Fort Lupton, Co. was envisioned by Lieutenant Lancaster Lupton in 1835 when he rode through the area with his First Dragoon Regiment. Envisioning a lively crossroads, the lieutenant returned a year later to build a trading fort. Business thrived until 1844, when a harsh blizzard drove Lupton to California. The community remained empty until enterprising traders reopened the post in 1859.

Town Know For: The area has come a long way. Although the community wasn't officially incorporated until 1974, today its 7,000 citizens have access to a recreation center that boasts a 139-foot waterslide and local farms produce some of the freshest tomatoes statewide. Visit the museum here, founded in 1950 when a local history buff donated a collection of arrowheads labeled and ready for display. Also in Fort Lupton is the Coyote Creek Golf Course, featuring wide fairways and lakes and bunkers to challenge every short-grass aficionado.
