History of Dacono, Colorado
 

The town of Dacono began as a small coal mining and agricultural community that grew as a result of the railroad running a line through town. The name Dacono was created by the town’s co-founder, Charles Lockhard Baum, who used the first two letters of three significant women in his life: his wife, Daisy, and two other women (Dacono residents) Cora and Nora. The town was incorporated in 1908.
 

Many of Dacono’s first settlers were European immigrants from Italy, Greece, France and Bulgaria that came to Colorado to work in the coal mines. Dacono’s farmers grew everything from wheat and grains to sugar beets, potatoes and corn.
 

The coal mining business in Dacono declined in the 1970s when natural gas was discovered and replaced coal. In recent years, Dacono has seen a rise in population with its affordable housing, proximity to Denver, and friendly, small town atmosphere.
