evergreen, coEvergreen is serenely placed in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just west of Denver, Colorado.  Here your gaze is of the mountains, and the scent of wildflowers and pine fills the air.  It's a place to enjoy the wildlife including deer and elk.  Here, birdies and eagles aren't just on the golf course.

There's a lot to do in Evergreen with many parks, art galleries, theater, restaurants, entertainment, and more.  The ever popular Evergreen Lake is fed by tributaries from Mt. Evans and is known for its all-season recreational activities such as boating, fishing, birding, ice-skating, weddings and concerts and is bordered by mountain parks with miles of trails for hiking, biking, running, snowshoeing, and horseback riding.

The tiny mountain town began to grow with the improvement of the Denver-Evergreen road up Bear Creek Canyon in 1911, and the advent of electrical service to the area in 1917. From the 1880's through the 1920's, Evergreen had become more than a rural logging and ranching community – it had become a popular summer resort for Denver residents. Troutdale-in-the-Pines, a posh resort hotel on picturesque Upper Bear Creek, catered to Hollywood movie stars and America's elite. Other summer resorts sprang up in the area as well, including the Greystone Guest Ranch and the Brook Forest Inn. Throughout the ‘20s and ‘30s, Evergreen remained primarily a resort community; its population of about 600 year-round residents nearly doubled during the summer months. In the ‘40s and ‘50s, as roads were improved and automobile travel became more popular, the identity of the isolated mountain town began to change. Those whose jobs might otherwise have kept them city-bound suddenly found themselves able to live in more rural areas. Some became the first of the Evergreen-Denver commuters. By the 1970s, Evergreen was established as a year-round commuter community.
