"A good cost of living in this area"

Severence got it's start back in 1894 as a sugar beet receiving station along the railroad. Many families also moved out west during this time with the Homestead Act and little towns like Severence began popping up all over the west. Although the current population is only 3,184 there are several times a year when the town is overridden with visitors to a local bar. Many motorcyclists converge on the town in an end of the riding season tradition at a Bruce's.

Severence is a pretty area with many of the homes being on land in the outlying areas. You can find farmland all around and many different types of crops growing. The average household income in Severence is $74,000 which is almost $20,000 higher than the state average. The average median home price is right in line with the state average of $237,000, making the cost of living here really good. Many of the residents work in construction or health care and social assistance.

Although there isn't much in Severence in the way of amenities, Greeley is only about 10 miles away and residents can find many shopping and dining options there.
