Louisville, Co. dates back to the start of the Welch Mine in 1877, the first coal mine in an area of Boulder and Weld counties known as the Northern Coalfield. The town was named for Louis Nawatny, a local landowner who platted his land and named it for himself. Incorporation came several years later, in 1882.[5]

The Northern Coalfield proved to be highly productive, and eventually some 30 different mines operated within the current boundaries of Louisville, though not all at the same time. During the years of peak production (1907–09) twelve mines were in operation in Louisville, including the Acme Mine whose two million tons of coal came from directly beneath the center of town. The presence of many independent mining companies in Louisville saved the town from becoming a "company town", wholly owned and dominated by a single mining company.[5]

Town Known For: On the outskirts of town, the award-winning 18-hole Coal Creek Golf Course features a links-style front nine and a wide-open view of Boulder's famed Flatiron peaks. Additionally, Louisville boasts 1700 acres of open space, and rolling, country roads on the north side of town are popular for road cycling. Top community events include Taste of Louisville in mid-June and the annual Labor Day parade.
