Where we are
The Town of Wiggins can be found on the Northeastern Plains of Colorado, located about an hour’s drive from the Denver Metro Area and the Front Range. Wiggins lies directly off of Highway 76 and is part of Morgan County.
Where we came from
The Town of Wiggins was incorporated on October 1, 1974. The move to incorporate was spearheaded by the Wiggins Business Association, who held a series of open town meetings to discuss the pros and cons of incorporating. Prior to October 1974, Wiggins had experienced three devastating floods that had harmed citizens financially as there was no legal entity to act in emergencies or sponsor repairs to infrastructure. The first Town Council members were appointed in an election held on December 3, 1974. Since then, the Town of Wiggins has grown and diversified but the participation and leadership of small businesses still remains a cornerstone of the community.
Who we are
The Town of Wiggins is a place where community thrives. Wiggins has a unique small town atmosphere. We value our roots while moving towards a bright future. Throughout the year our community comes together for softball and baseball leagues, children's day camps, annual community barbecues, clean up days, and spectacular Christmas and 4th of July Celebrations. It is the community that truly makes us who we are.
What we have to offer
The Town of Wiggins is surrounded by various agricultural producers, and offers the opportunity for boating, fishing, camping, and hunting, as well as family recreation. The Town of Wiggins is home to its own top-rated school district, providing education to children ages Pre-K through 12th grade. Family-owned businesses and restaurants are an integral part of the small community lifestyle in Wiggins. In addition, Wiggins is one of the few municipalities in Colorado that is home to a gigbit internet provider. This gigabit service is a fiberoptic broadband connection that delivers speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second, giving Wiggins some of the fastest and most reliable internet in Colorado.
Where we're headed
The Town of Wiggins is growing, and our vision for the future is a place where hometown character meets modern convenience. Two new residential developments are underway in Wiggins, providing affordable housing options for future Wiggins residents. In 2016, the Wiggins School District began plans to construct a new, state-of-the-art High School, as well as to make improvements to the Elementary and Middle School Buildings.
