History

The City of Arvada was founded in 1870 and incorporated in 1904. We are proud of our past and the rich heritage of our community! 

We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers at the Arvada Historical Society who painstakingly collect and preserve historic photographs, documents, books, and newspapers and make them available to the public. You may visit them at the McIlvoy House at 7307 Grandview Avenue!
