Founded in 1859 as a farming community, Wheat Ridge once supplied produce and dairy products to thousands of workers involved in the mining industries for coal, ore, and some gold and silver.  By the time mining operations slowed down, the community was already well-situated as the world's largest producer of carnations.  The town incorporated in 1969 to avoid being annexed by other cities in the growing Metropolitan region.

Opportunities are convenient for every aspect of life from work to play.  Now home to the Exempla-Lutheran Medical Center which employs over 2,500 people, and businesses such as Kaiser Permanente, Medved Colorado, and several national chain stores, the community continues to offer a great place for families to settle down.

Families are served by the highly acclaimed JeffCo Schools, and numerous private schools in the Denver area.  Still proud of its farming heritage, the high school mascot is the "Farmers."
