Our History

Sedgwick is an agricultural community of slightly fewer than 200 people, many of whom are descended from the original immigrants who settled along the river.  Our forebears were Japanese, Mexican and German settlers. The town bears the name of General John Sedgwick who served his country with loyalty and distinction in the Union Army during the American Civil War.


Over time, we hope to bring to life highlights of Sedgwick's active and colorful history, right here on our website. So be sure to check back often, to see what we have added. Of course, we can never duplicate here all the history that is contained in our local museums, so we encourage you to enjoy them at your leisure while in the area.


Sedgwick Colorado  1881

   The town site was first surveyed in 1887, six years after the United Pacific Railroad established its cross-country route. The train carried mail, stock and farm goods both west and east. At one time, there were two passenger trains a day passing through Sedgwick. Sedgwick was once a busy, prosperous town with two banks, three grocery and dry goods stores, several beauty and barber shops, drug stores, a newspaper, a train depot, and other businesses and services.

   In 1906, Jumbo (Julesburg) Reservoir was built 11 miles from Sedgwick. As well as being an important water source for local agriculture, it is a popular recreational site for local folks and tourists as well, offering fishing, boating, swimming, birdwatching, and camping.

   Sedgwick was incorporated as a town in the early 1900s. It is a statutory Mayor-and-Board-of-Trustees Town, and is a quietly lively little town undergoing some growth, as people discover the pleasure of escaping the cities, and living in small, friendly towns. For a glimpse into out long and colorful history, please visit our Jailhouse Museum, as well as our various businesses.
