Greenwood Village

Homes for sale in Greenwood Village are found to be exclusive to most buyers.  By the early 1900s, the village area thrived with orchards of cherry, apple, apricot, plum, and pear trees. Rufus Clark, a Colorado pioneer, bought 160 acres of land along the Platte River. Clark raised potatoes and eventually acquired 20,000 acres of land, including much of Greenwood Village east of Holly Street.

While Rufus Clark was acquiring the massive Clark Colony east of Holly Street, Cyrus G. Richardson, another immigrant, was operating the Greenwood Ranch. An 1899 farm map showed Greenwood Ranch with eight reservoirs.  The name “Greenwood Ranch” was the inspiration for the name “Greenwood Village.”

During the 1930s and ‘40s, the area contained a mixture of farmers, suburbanites, and people who lived in Denver, but would come south to “country homes” for the summer. The year 1950 brought many worries to residents that development creeping south from Denver would threaten their pastoral lifestyles. A proposed new town was suggested to be called “Greenwood Village” after the historic Greenwood Ranch.
An election was held on September 8, 1950 to incorporate Greenwood Village as a town. The small rural community became the Town of Greenwood Village and Charles Enos was elected its first mayor.

Fifty years ago, Greenwood Village was a land strewn with farms, dairies, gravel roads, and a population of 500 residents. Today, those rural elements have been preserved with the addition of a developed, dynamic blend of urban and residential areas, and nationally recognized business parks that contribute to the well-being of the village.

Thank you to the city for their own wonderful description about how great of a city they really are to live, play, work and to find a home for sale in Greenwood Village.
