History of Firestone, CO

Jacob Firestone

The Town of Firestone, named after Ohio investor Jacob H. Firestone, was established in 1908 to support local coal miners and their families. On May 27, 1907, the Denslow Coal and Land Company dedicated a perpetual right of way to the public, forming the boundaries of the Town. Denslow Coal and Land had purchased 160 acres of land from the widow of Thomas McKissick of McKissick Mine.

Later that same year, Ohio investors bought Denslow out and started the Firestone Coal Company, establishing the Firestone coal mine.

Today, the Town of Firestone offers residents the charm of a small town along with easy access to the Rocky Mountains, front range communities, parks, trails, schools, community events and more.

“A Community In Motion”, is a fitting motto for Firestone, Colorado, who’s populated was estimated to grow to over 16,000 in 2020, up from 10,147 in 2010. It’s a statutory town located nearby the South Platte River on the northern front range.

Situated midway between Fort Collins and Denver, both less than an hour away, and with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, it's no surprise Firestone has experienced one of the fastest growth rates in the state over the last decade.

Coal Mines

Five coal mines operated in Firestone until 1947, when all of these mines closed. During its production, Firestone’s Grant Mine produced over two million tons of coal, enough to fill a coal train for 200 miles. The train track bed that carried Firestone’s coal was decommissioned with the mines, and it was transformed into the 12-mile-long Firestone Trail. This trail runs from Settler’s Park to Coronado Park, connecting many neighborhood and regional parks, the St. Vrain Legacy Trail, and the Colorado Front Range Trail.

Early Town Boundaries

The original plat, or plot of land, encompassing the Town ran north up to Grant Avenue, east to Fourth Street, south to McClure Avenue and west to First Street.

Firestone was the third coal mining town compromising a trio of towns northeast of Erie, along with Frederick and Dacono, and commonly referred to as the Tri-Towns or the Carbon Valley. 

Centennial Clock & Time Capsule

On Aug. 29, 2009, the Firestone Board of Trustees hosted a dedication ceremony for the Firestone Centennial Clock, time capsule and associated brick plaza area located at the Jacob H. Firestone Memorial Park.

This project was inspired by Trustee Paul Sorensen, who put forth a tremendous effort to commemorate Firestone.

The brick plaza area is made up of individual brick pavers, which identify the names of many of the project’s supporters. The time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 2059.
