Like many of the towns and cities in Colorado, Superior started its history as a mining town. Its name “Superior” was so called because the coal mined in this area was believed to be of superior quality. In the mid-1940’s, the need for coal as an energy source diminished and mining for coal eventually faded into history. The town evolved into a ranching and farming community. Today, Superior is considered the gateway to the Boulder Valley.
In 2015, the United States Census Bureau estimated the population to be approximately 12,716. Of these, 58% were married couples and 47% had children under 18 years of age. The median household income was $100,000 and the median income per family was $119,000.
