Louisville is a part of the Denver-Boulder metropolitan area and is just a few miles from the city of Boulder in the middle of beautiful natural surroundings.
Louisville is home to some 20,000 residents and is primarily a close-knit bedroom community.
Residents from Louisville benefit from the close proximity to Boulder and all its “big city” amenities while being able to take advantage of the much lower housing costs, views, open space and small town feel of their local communities.
Louisville was named after Louis Nawatny, a local landowner and mine owner. Acme Mine operated directly beneath Louisville.
These mines were among more than 30 that operated in the area mines found in and around the area around the turn of the century. Louisville was incorporated in 1882.
When the use of coal declined following World War II, the mines began to shut down. The last mines near Louisville closed in 1952. Subsequently, many people moved out of the area and the towns evolved into a quiet ranching and farming communities. Superior’s population hovered around 250 until recently.
Today, Louisville benefits from a booming real estate market thanks to their close proximity to Boulder and the development of new highways that has attracted new industry. Louisville has approximately 1,700 acres of open space earmarked for industrial and commercial growth. Superior also plans on new industrial and commercial development.
