Longmont has two nationally registered downtown historic neighborhood districts: the Historic Eastside and Historic Westside. The purpose of these districts is to recognize their special character and interest and exemplify outstanding elements of Longmont's heritage since its founding in 1871 by the Chicago-Colorado Colony. The neighborhoods feature several unique amenities associated with original Longmont, such as wide streets, large lots, mature trees, and a variety of architectural character including bungalows, cottages and Victoria-style buildings. One of the main characteristics of the neighborhoods is their small town feel, which is emphasized by their proximity to historic Main Street shops and services.
Many streets in the Historic Eastside Neighborhood are named after original founding fathers of Longmont, including Kimbark, Emery, Collyer, Atwood, and Baker. During the 1880s residential development concentrated on the east side and many examples of Victorian, Edwardian, Italianate and Queen Anne styles of that era still exist today. Uniformity is not a feature of the residences in the Historic Eastside neighborhood and many of the houses reflect the charm and character of bygone times. The boundaries are from Kimbark Street east to Martin Street and 3rd Avenue north to 9th Avenue.
The Historic Westside Neighborhood settled in the St. Vrain River Valley and brought with them their Midwestern values and aesthetics. The homes reflect the many styles and vernaculars that were familiar to them – Craftsman, Queen Anne, Four Square, Farmhouse and their many variations. They brought an aesthetically pleasing vision, with their large deciduous trees, neighborhood parks and unique homes. In addition, the neighborhood has historic homes that are used for small businesses and the neighborhood includes a portion of the downtown business community. The boundaries are from Main Street west to the Bowen Street, and from the 3rd Avenue north to 9th Avenue. For more information visit the district’s web site.
Other apartment and condominium communities exist downtown and offer many convenient amenities and access to the downtown area.
Additional community and neighborhood information for the entire Longmont area is available on the City of Longmont’s website.
