Conifer, Co., was also known, in the 1860s, as Bradford Junction, a stop on the stagecoach road to South Park. A few buildings were erected, including a tavern, rest house, and general store. Bradford Junction deteriorated by the 1890s when the stagecoach road was replaced by the Denver and South Park railroad.
By the 1920s the area was simply known as Conifer. A destination known for it's beautiful Mountain scenery and abundance of wildlife. For decades,the area was primarily a cattle ranching area, and there is still some ranching in southern parts of the community.
Nestled in the foothills 15 miles southwest of Denver, Conifer is far enough from the big city to feel like a true mountain community, but still close enough for visitors to enjoy all the metro area has to offer. The abundance of parks and open space in the area provide a home for deer, elk, foxes, birds and rabbits. In the spring and summer, seasonal wildflowers carpet Conifer's hills.
