The Pinery, Colorado’s history begins in 1858 when gold was discovered in the Pike’s Peak Region of Colorado. Word traveled through the frontier causing prospectors to quickly flooded the Denver area hoping to get lucky and get rich. Following the miners were various industries that sprung up to support the mining communities including ranching, timber, and farming. The region that is now The Pinery provided the wood needed to build the houses in Denver and the surrounding communities that sprung up during this time. Therefore, the role of these pine-producing regions in Colorado history is tremendous.
The region remained relatively empty until the 1970’s when a Utah development company, Terracor invested in developing the community on the land that used to be pine forest. The development remained relatively unchanged through the 70s and when Terracor declared bankruptcy in 1982, Senior Corp. swooped in and invested in the development. Residents who had moved to the community with the promise of amenities from the Terracor group found that the investors had not delivered. Therefore, in the 80’s the residents formed a homeowners association and began pressing the new investors to deliver. Senior Corp. began to deliver and The Pinery began to take shape into what it is today.
Today the community remains unincorporated with a population of about 8,000.
