Small town and still feels like a small town. Spectacular views of Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and the front Range. Close enough to Longmont for shopping and close to Hwy 85 and I-25 for commuters who prefer to live in a quiet town and work somewhere else.
The town of Mead was named after Dr. Martin S. Mead, a pioneer and settler. A post office called Mead has been in operation since 1907.
