Named in honor of Governor Dan Thornton, the City was originally the first fully planned community in Adams County.  It was Sam Hoffman who developed a parcel of land off Washington Street north of Denver.  By the end of 1955, the development housed 5,500 residents in more than 1,200 homes.

It is a great place for family activities.  The City of Thornton maintains over 60 parks and facilities including the modern Margaret W. Carpenter Recreation Center and the 18-hole Thorncreek Golf Course.  Approximately 1,000 acres of land are designated for public parks.  Facilities include athletic fields, swimming pools, tennis courts, gymnasiums, and programs for all ages.

The community also hosts several annual events including Thornton Annual Festival Days, Thorntonfest, and the Thornton Harvest Fest at Community  Park.

An hour to the west are the Rocky Mountains where residents ski, hike, camp, mountain bike, hunt, and find ways to take frequent short vacations.

The diverse community of 110,000 includes a combination of blue- and white- collar workers who have a commitment to quality-of-life and environmental issues.  Many of the major employers are high-tech companies.  Residents are also able to access metro-area employment via the FasTracks commuter rail network.

Most families are served by Adams County School Districts and Mapleton School District.  With eight major universities and colleges in the area - Universities of Colorado at Boulder and Denver, University of Denver, Metropolitan State College, University of Northern Colorado, Colorado State University, Colorado School of Mines, and Regis University - the community places a great emphasis on education.
