The Town of Berthoud is located on Colorado’s Northern Front Range on State Highway 278, and just a few miles west of I-25. Berthoud provides a blend of Victorian homes, new housing developments, and tree-lined residential avenues. It has an historic-feeling downtown, growing commerce, excellent schools, proximity to world-class outdoor recreation, and an overwhelming sense of community spirit.

Roberts Lake and Park anchor the northern neighborhoods of Berthoud, while Berthoud and Bien Parks are the focus of the southern area of town. Berthoud furnishes easy access to employment centers from Denver north along the Front Range.

In 1872, a Central City miner-turned-rancher by the name of Lewis Cross set the stage for the valley’s first settlement when he staked a homestead claim where the Colorado Central railroad company planned to cross Little Thompson creek. When the tracks were laid through the valley in 1877, a depot, section house and water tank were installed at this strategic site and the tiny settlement once known as Little Thompson was renamed Berthoud in honor of civil engineer E.L. Berthoud who surveyed the rail route through the valley. During 1883-84, the buildings of the tiny burg were loaded on skids and pulled by teams of draft animals to the town’s present-day location on the bluff one mile north of the river.

Berthoud retains its small town feel as it expands and grows in the 21st Century. Venerable business and residential districts inspire residents preserve historic structures while the Berthoud Historical Society promotes the heritage of the community.
