Northglenn, Co. began in the spring of 1959 when Perl-Mack Co. finalized plans for a large subdivision north of Denver in unincorporated Adams County. The plans for this new community included designs of commercial, industrial, recreational and school areas that was to be centered around a regional shopping complex.
On June 30, 1959, more than 15,000 people visited the first five show homes, located on the northeast corner of what is now the intersection of Interstate 25 and 104th Avenue. Those visitors were so impressed with the homes, which ranged in price from $13,500 to $20,350, the high volume of orders swamped Perl-Mack's staff. North Glenn officially became a city on April 18, 1969. The first municipal election was held in April 1969 to elect the first Mayor, City Council, City Clerk and City Treasurer. Hugh Danahy was elected the first Mayor of the City.
