About Evans

City of Evans Colorado

Known as the "Queen City of the Platte" when incorporated in 1869, Evans was the County Seat of Weld County for many years. From a population of around 400 in a true wild west town, Evans has grown to 18,537 residents living in an urban area with a rural feel. For a long time Evans was the only town in the area to allow liquor and gambling, which made it the center of activity in the area.

Today Evans is a community where our residents have a wide choice of housing, great schools, all the shopping and amenities of a large town, and a great quality of life. With over 300 days of sunshine each year and a full four seasons, many people relocate to Evans to experience the best of northern Colorado.

Residents enjoy over 300 acres of parks and open space (including a dog park), several hiking and biking trails along the river and within the town, easy access to the Denver International Airport, and quick drives south to Denver or west to the Rocky Mountains. A local airport has flights around the country leaving daily, the access to I-25, US 85 and US 34 are only minutes away, and the conveniently located Union Pacific Railroad offers opportunities for shipping and receiving materials. Evans is a wonderful place to raise a family, start a business, and buy a home. Come see us or give us a call and we'll be happy to help you get to know Evans.
