History & History Related Items

Loveland history: Mariano Medina, a New Mexico frontiersman, came to the area in 1858 and opened a trading post west of what is now Loveland. He named the Trading Post, Namaqua. It wasn't long before the Overland Stage Line made the Namaqua part of their route in 1862. Nearby, a new town, St. Louis, was emerging. Its economy focused on a flour mill there. As St. Louis grew and prospered, Namaqua equally declined. When the railroad was mapping out their new routes, they chose a site about two miles west of St. Louis for a new location. David Barnes is the man who platted the new town near the tracks. The railroad president at the time, and a retired general, W.A.H. Loveland, was a friend of Mr. Barnes. He named the new town Loveland after his friend. The town began with just a tent, but more permanent structures were soon built. Shortly, the Loveland Hotel was built and new businesses began to spring up. Homes, schools and churches came quickly to round out the town. Culture was important in Loveland, even in the early days. An opera house was built in 1884 to provide Loveland with all the amenities of a refined life.
