"A small close knit community in northeastern Colorado"

Ovid is a small town just two miles from the Nebraska border in the upper northeast corner of Colorado. It got it's start back during the Pony Express and around the time of Fort Sedgwick, a military post. There used to be a sugar plant here, as they were scattered throughout Colorado. The building is still standing here, close to the grain elevators, although you can tell it's abandoned by the broken windows and run down look of it. Nowadays, there is a meat packing plant in town which supplies some of the employment opportunities in the town. The railroad used to bring supplies to Ovid and still comes through town.

Currently there are 317 people living in Ovid. The town is small, with many of the residential streets still being dirt. There is a small school system where every child is encouraged to play sports and join clubs. There is a local volunteer fire department, but 911 services are also provided by the Sedgwick County Sheriffs Office. The small town has a great community feel to it, and many of the residents are very close knit.

The average household income in Ovid is $31,303, with less than 10% of residents living below the poverty rate, which is pretty good for such a small town. The median average priced home is $50,384. The largest industry here is retail, followed by manufacturing, then agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting.
