Many towns in the MidWest and West in America began as railroad towns or mining communities. Louisville began as a mining town in the late 19th Century. When mining went into decline during the 1950s, the town became a residential community that could serve larger cities nearby, including Boulder, Denver, and Aurora.
Besides the Rocky Mountains, Louisville provides breathtaking veiws of the Flatiron Mountains and Indian Peaks. The Historic Downtown area is under constant planning and developmet by city fathers. The railroad did come through Colorado near Louisville afer mining took hold of the economy and Downtown Louisville is set to build a new station for modern rail transporation. Trains will run to Boulder and Denver.
