Pierce, Colorado: a brief history. In 1869, what would become the town of Pierce was established as the Denver Pacific Railroad’s first section station north of Denver, and its second one in Weld County. Named for the railroad’s surveyor general John Pierce, it had a section house, water tank and siding. When a post office, housed in a box car, arrived in 1903, the section station became a town, and was platted in 1906 by local landowners John and Bert Shafer. The Shafers, in 1907, deeded the town land on which to build a school, but it took another eleven years for Pierce to become incorporated. The teetotalling Shafers inserted a clause prohibiting the production or sales of alcohol in the town. Those who disobeyed would forfeit their land. After a depot was built in 1905, Pierce became a shipping point for the sugar beets, beans, potatoes, sheep, and cattle produced by the area’s ranchers. The town reached a maximum population of about 1000 in 1976. When Colorado’s networks of highways matured and agricultural products could be shipped more directly by truck, Pierce’s economic base dwindled.

Pierce attractions. Pierce is located on Colorado Highway 85, about 15-20 minutes north of Greeley, home of the University of Northern Colorado. That puts Pierce residents close to such festivities as the annual July 4th Greeley Stampede, and the Greeley Arts Picnic. Pierce is also less than 90 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park and all the businesses, entertainment, cultural, sports, dining, and shopping venues of Denver.

Pierce today. Pierce has participated in the rapid growth of Weld County over the past decade, with its population nearly doubling from the 884 listed in the 2000 Census to over 1600 today. Yet it remains an unspoiled Front Range agricultural community with the views of the Rocky Mountains across the sweeping prairies to the west.

Pierce Colorado houses and population numbers. As of the last census there were 312 Pierce CO homes, with 860 people living in them. In a small town market such as this, the time of year that you decide to look for your home – since there are more homes on the market in the spring and summer, and it gets very slow in the winter – could be a big factor in your success.
