Lakewood started up as a weekend getaway west of Colfax Avenue for many of Denver’s well-off elite, after Colorado Central Railroad president WAH Loveland established a home that he can live in during his advanced years in the area. It eventually became a part of The Loop, a section of the Denver Tramway that serviced Denver, Golden, and Lakewood, in 1893.
Remington would set up an ammunition factory in the town in 1941. It was the biggest government contract for the state at that time.
Lakewood would successfully petition for incorporation more than two decades later, in 1969.
