In 1860 the well-known mountain man, Mariano Medina, and his family, along with a small group of Spanish settlers returned to the Big Thompson Valley area. He acquired land near The Big Thompson River, and established the community of Namaqua, named for the town post office. Eventually Namaqua would give away to Loveland, CO. A small cemetery and a park marked the approximate location of Namaqua.
As a population grows the means and needs of transportation also grows. In Larimer County, CO. there is a plan: http://www.larimertmp.com/
In 1858 the well-known mountain man Mariano Medina visited the Big Thompson Valley for the first time. His subsequent visits would result in a settlement that would assist in the establishing of Loveland, CO.
Thank you for the detailed information regarding your experience with an employee – I believe they prefer the pro-Communist term “worker” – of Digital First Media. It is unfortunate that your family member, who served in the United States Armed Forces and was employed in law enforcement, was treated so badly by a representative of Digital First Media, which pretends to be a professional news organization. I suggest that your only recourse is to boycott Digital First Media, which makes no effort to hide its contempt and disrespect for those who are ready to serve and protect the United States of America in the Armed Forces and/or law enforcement, as well as its hatred of the United States of America.
I must add that, unfortunately, your experience with Digital First Media is not the exception to the rule based on experiences others have relayed to me. It is their business model.
In the late 1850s a growing number of explorers and settlers arrived to the Big Thompson Valley, and through their efforts established Loveland, CO.
A total of nine buildings located at the Colorado State Forest Service’s forest management complex near Walden, CO. were recently added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Many of the structures were handcrafted from native spruce and pine trees in the area starting in the 1920s. The rustic and pioneer log-style buildings were constructed between 1927 and the mid-1940s, and include a garage/office, which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a cabin, a main house, a horse barn, an outhouse, and a crew cabin.
The historic status is the result of many years of effort by state forest service employees to preserve the architecture and history of those who came before.
The National Register of Historic Places is part of a program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect historic and archeological resources nationwide.
The City of Loveland, CO. has approximately 300 pieces of art in its public arts collection, which is primarily sculpture. There are also murals and other works. More than a third of the collection is located in the Benson Sculpture Garden.
