"A great town for those who like them small"

I have always liked Eads, probably because I'm fascinated with history and the past and when I'm in Eads I feel like I've been transported back in time. The main street in town is wide with plenty of parking on the street and buildings dating back to around the 50s I would guess. This area was always popular with many different Indian tribes, and eventually the town became known as one of the popular railroad stops. Farming has been in the area for a long time, and large portion of the town still works in agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting. Second to this industry is health care and social assistance as there is a hospital, medical clinic, and nursing home in Eads. Not bad for a small town with only 611 people.

Although the median household income is only $35,944 (much lower than Colorado's average), you can purchase a home here for about $$65-70,000 which is WAY below the state's average. Most of the homes in town are small, single family residences with a few mobile homes scattered about. In some of the out lying areas you can find larger homes on more acreage as with most smaller towns.

The town's residents are almost 95% white and there is almost no crime. Even during the worst of the recession in the U.S., the unemployment rate in Eads was very low when compared to other areas in the state.

Eads has three public schools, although the elementary and middle schools share the same campus on Maine Street, while the high school is located on West 19th Street. The schools look well kept and the community has high praise for them. The town also has some really nice baseball fields for the kids to play on.

Overall I think Eads would be a great place to raise kids if you were looking for a true, small town atmosphere.
