"A quiet little town in northern Colorado"

Milliken's history goes back to 1860 when it became a trading post, although it went by another name then. Later years would see the train going through, a major post stop, and plenty of jobs from the nearby sugar beet factories. The small town has hung on through the years and today there are about 5,642 residents living here. When you drive through town there are many older homes that are very cute and have a nice little yard to go with them. There is a pretty tight sense of community in Milliken has a lot of residents that have lived here for a long time. There are plenty of large, older trees lining the roads, giving shade in the hot summers. As you drive on the outer lying streets you can see a variety of different crops growing, including corn.

Many of the residents here work in construction, closely followed by manufacturing. The median household income here is $58,492 which is slightly higher than the state average. You can purchase a median average priced home her $174,758 which is considerably lower than the state average, so the cost of living in Milliken is really good.

Although there are a lot of towns nearby, the crime rate here is pretty low. Around 69% of the population is white, while 28% is Hispanic. The schools here rate about average when compared to others in the state.
