Fleming Colorado History
Fleming, Colorado was first settled in the 1880s but came to life in 1904 when the railroad arrived and brought a store and bank with it. Fleming was named after a railroad official, Henry Bascom Fleming, and continued to flourish. Now this rural town is home to a vibrant community passionate about the Fleming K-12 Grade School sports team, the Fleming Wildcats, and turning their town into a welcoming place for new families and businesses.
