There are financial institutions here that are primarily driven by local business. Academics play a small role, with lesser known universities located within the city limits. The Colorado Christian University and International Baccalaureate School are also located here.

Being a temporary resident in Lakewood, CO corporate housing need not relegate you to feeling like a complete outsider. Acquaint yourself with Lakewood’s history by reading our brief historical summary provided below.
Lakewood began as a small community removed from downtown Denver along Colfax Ave. It started when Charles Welch and W.A.H Loveland platted a small plot of land in Eastern Jefferson county. Lakewood was eventually incorporated in the late 1960s, at a time when the city's population was already swelling past 90,000 inhabitants. Prior to incorporation, the community acquired public services from the neighboring towns and counties, including Jefferson County's Sheriff's services as well as its emergency services.
The city's growth, predating the incorporation, continued and mirrored the growth of the surrounding cities, including Denver. Lakewood is indeed a satellite city, so much so, it doesn't even have a local Main Street where the town's centralized services are located. Most of these services are mingled with that of Denver's.
