Fort Morgan has thrived on the eastern plains of Colorado since it was established in 1884. The city now serves as the commercial and retail hub of Northeastern Colorado, offering a multitude of cultural and educational resources. The Fort Morgan School District consists of one early childhood center, three elementary schools, a fifth/sixth grade school, one middle school and one high school, as well as a private parochial school, pre-school to eighth grade.

Morgan Community College is a two-year community college, one of 14 community colleges in the Colorado Community College & Occupational Education System, Colorado’s largest system of higher education. The school system receives support from the 45,000-volume public library and the Fort Morgan Museum, which recently underwent a $2 million expansion. Morgan County is also home to the Tin Man Triathlon, the Glenn Miller Festival (the world famous Big Band musician grew up here) and the world’s largest open rodeo.

The nearby Rocky Mountains are world-renowned for their gold-medal fly-fishing and winter sports. Prime hunting areas for deer, antelope, pheasant, turkey, grouse, quail, duck and geese are plentiful around Fort Morgan. Pawnee Buttes National Grasslands, a 30-minute drive north, is a hiker’s and photographer’s paradise, and Jackson State Park and Reservoir offers boating, water skiing, and fishing. The city of Fort Morgan supports a strong city recreation program, including a challenging 18-hole municipal golf course. The 77-acre Riverside Park has playgrounds, horseshoe pits, skating rink, swimming pool, fitness trails, duck ponds, and facilities for volleyball, basketball and baseball, all adjacent to a 240-acre natural area with walking trails.
