About Kersey

The Town of Kersey Colorado is home to around 1600 people. It is a close knit agricultural community and home of the Platte Valley School District; one of the most highly sought after school districts in Northern Colorado.

The Town of Kersey started as the Town of Orr.  This only lasted a few years before the name was officially changed, but there continues to be many relatives of the Orr's in the area.  The map shown in the pictures to the right is the original layout for the Town adopted well before our official incorporation dates in 1908 as the Town of Kersey.  Interesting to note how government worked in the 1800's, largely based out of the Denver area with reference to Great Britain and Ireland. 
Kersey is conveniently located on U.S. Highway 34, just 3 miles east of Greeley in rapidly growing Weld County. Situated just east of the foothills of the gorgeous Rocky Mountains and south of the Pawnee Buttes. Kersey is only minutes from all the conveniences found in Greeley, Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, and is approximately 1 hour from Denver International Airport and the Denver metropolitan area.
