Located in the Eastern Plains area of Colorado and less than 100 miles NE of Denver, the small city of Fort Morgan lies on the historical Overland Trail and is the boyhood home of Big Band great Glenn Miller. With a population of slightly less than 12,000, Fort Morgan's economy is mainly agricultural-based; farms and ranches abound in this area. One of the leading employers outside of ranching is the Cargill meat packing plant.
Although a small town, there is plenty to see and do in and around Fort Morgan. The Fort Morgan Museum traces not only the agricultural history of the region, but also that of the Pawnee and other Plains Indian tribes who roamed here. Follow the Pawnee Pioneer Trail Scenic and Historic Byway northward to Pawnee Buttes, or head for nearby Jackson Lake State Park for a day of boating and fishing. For adrenaline junkies, give Skydive Empire a visit for an exciting few hours of tandem sky-diving.
Besides an early childhood center, Fort Morgan boasts four elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and one alternative high school for its school-age children, as well as an accredited 2-year community college. All schools meet the State of Colorado's high standards for education.
