A Place to Belong
Even if you have never been here before, the spirit of this community is “Welcome Home.” It sits on the last high point facing the Rockies, before dropping into the Platte River Valley. So from here, from this very place of historic trails and pioneer canals, the first settlers stopped, looked west, and thought about their fate. Colorado has always been a welcoming place, open to all people. 150 years ago, people of all types chose to make this home, to stay here where the sky meets the Rockies. This is a place where travelers paused and rested. Many of those people liked it and stayed, realizing that they did not need to cross the mountains to find what they were seeking. They were people of all ethnicities, all socioeconomic backgrounds and diverse religious and spiritual beliefs. Because of this diversity, and because so many came here seeking the same thing, there has always been an atmosphere of “Welcome” to those arriving. Welcome home to Painted Prairie.
