History

The town of Erie, incorporated in 1874, has its roots in agriculture and coal mining. In the early 1870’s, a line from Brighton to Erie was added to the Union Pacific line (Denver to Cheyenne) to haul Erie’s generous coal supplies to fuel the railroad’s massive steam engines. The town of Erie was named by its founder, Reverend Richard Van Valkenburg, a Methodist preacher who connected widespread local citizens through gospel. Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Reverend Valkenburg honored his native city with the naming of Erie, Colorado. Reverend Valkenburg went on to serve as mayor, postmaster, police judge and more for the burgeoning coal mining town. By the mid-1870’s, Erie began to see growth.  A community emerged with a town hall, jail, large school, churches and doctor offices. Erie’s history as a coal mining town includes several worker strikes and tragic mining accidents. Tributes and memorials to Erie’s miners can be found around the town today.


In the 1940’s, demand for coal slowed, and Erie’s coal production dwindled by the 1960s. Around the turn of the century, Erie experienced incredible growth and has boomed into a substantial suburban community, tucked between Boulder, Longmont and Denver.
