Thornton Real Estate and Thornton Community Information

Thornton is located on a high ridge 10 miles north of Denver and is home to more than 87,000 residents who enjoy scenic views of the mountains, neighboring cities and valleys.

Thornton was created in the early 1950s as part of a movement of planned development on the outskirts of Denver. Thornton today is one of the fastest growing suburban communities in the state. Residents enjoy affordable housing, outstanding education and numerous recreational opportunities. Between 1970 and 1980, Thornton had the highest percentage growth rate of all Colorado municipalities.

Typical of Denver and its suburbs, Thornton is a haven for the technology industry and many of its major employers are high-tech firms. Many Thornton residents commute via I-25, the 470 Beltway, Denver International Airport and the entire Denver metropolitan area.

Thornton is now home to 72,000 people. Major employers include TeleTech, Echo Star Communications, Fischer Imaging, and the Adams County School Districts.
