Five Fun Facts About Greenwood Village

Just 50 years ago Greenwood Village’s landscape featured farms, dairies and gravel roads–and a population of just 500. Yes. Lots of things have changed in the past few decades, but one thing hasn’t: Greenwood Village is a great place to call home.

Here are five fun facts about Greenwood Village:

  1. The area that is now Greenwood Village was first settled in the 1860s when settlers came from all over the country in search of gold.
  2. The name Greenwood Ranch was the inspiration for Greenwood Village. Greenwood Ranch was operated by Cyrus G. Richardson and included a large part of what the city is today.
  3. Orchards of cherries, apples, apricots, plums and pears were thriving in Greenwood Village by the time 1900 rolled around.
  4. In the 1930s and 1940s Greenwood Village was a popular summer vacation spot for those who lived in Denver.
  5. From just about 500 residents 50 years ago, the town’s population has grown to nearly 14,000 as of 2010.
