It begins with the land.
Long ago, prospectors were lured to this Colorado land by the promise of gold. It wasn’t long before they discovered that the real treasure was in the fertile farms they soon tended with care, while raising close-knit families with simple values.
The city of Brighton was born of this farming lore over 150 years ago. Its welcoming western spirit and rich agricultural roots still run deep. It’s a place where pride, friendship, kinship with nature, love of family and a true spirit of community are etched into the land. All just waiting to embrace new residents.
Nestled about 20 minutes northeast of downtown Denver, Brighton is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation for good reason. Nature and unlimited outdoor fun are right at its doorstep, offering adventure and self-discovery. Prime shopping and dining are a stone’s throw away. Five bustling farmer’s markets (yes, five) feature the fresh goods of some of the area’s largest vegetable growers. The more Denver grows (in this direction, by the way), the more Brighton feels comfortably close.
Working hand-in-hand with the city of Brighton, everything about the new 500-acre Farmlore master-planned community is being designed to maintain its connection to the spirit of Brighton and the unique agricultural flavor of the area.
