"Cedar Edge" was the name Sophie Kohler, wife of the ranch foreman of the Bar I Cattle Ranch, named the community. On December 5, 1894, a Post Office was named Cedaredge by combining the words Cedar and Edge. According to a newspaper report from August 19, 1904, a land development company provided a Town Park and built a hotel, and intended to make Cedaredge "one of the prettiest towns in this part of Colorado" - a sentiment we still maintain to this day! On February 24, 1905 town site lots were laid out to prepare for a bank, a store and to provide proper layout of streets. On March 25, 1907 the town officially incorporated an area known as the Bar I Cattle Ranch approximately 370 acres. Prior to 1913 each family depended on a well for water. That summer the Cedaredge water works consisted of a system one mile north of town where the water was piped to the residents. Individual septic systems were replaced with sewage collection and treatment by 1980 to serve a town that more than doubled in size since 1907. An eighteen hole golf course was completed with the front nine in 1992, and back nine in 1995, expanding the town from 800 acres and 1,200 people to almost 1,300 acres and 1,800 people by the year 2000.
