Elizabeth Colorado Community Information


The town of Elizabeth Colorado began in 1855 as a saw mill camp operated by the Weber Brothers along the bank of Running Creek. A few years later, in 1858, gold was discovered in the creek. There was a gold rush , but the quality and quantity of the gold never lead to a boom. However, settlers did steadily move in, to work the land. After the original camp site was flooded, the town was moved to its present location.

Today, Elizabeth Colorado means small town, horse properties, pine trees and wide open prairies. Properties can range in price from the low $200,000 up to multi-million dollar agricultural properties. Real estate values tend to stay fairly level although proximity to Denver tends to increase value.
