Lakewood was planned by William Loveland in 1889. Loveland was president of a railroad company in Colorado, and he wanted to make his home in a new community when he retired. He chose an area west of Denver for the new community, and Denver's wealthy residents spent their summers in the Lakewood area. An electric tramway was built in 1893 to connect Lakewood with Denver and the town of Golden. The Remington Arms Company was built in the area in 1941. Lakewood was incorporated in 1969.
