Loveland Colorado

Loveland, Colorado, is located in the northern part of the state. It lies along the Little Miami River near where it meets Bigger Creek to form the main stem of the Licking River. This area has been a special place for nearly two hundred years.

The city of Loveland was laid out in 1866 on the Ohio-Erie Canal by J.H. Johnson, but it wasn’t until 1865 that Henry Howe described it as “a port on Little Miami River where there are several stores and dwellings.” The population then was about 150 people scattered along Front Avenue. Five years later, when the railroad came through just south of town, Loveland had grown to 250 residents who built homes, stores, shops, malls, and churches near(nearby) the town’s center at Front and Sixth streets. In 1874, Loveland was officially organized as a city with about 500 people.
