Berthoud (1875, 5,030 feet) was founded by the Colorado Central Railroad and named for that road's chief surveyor, Edward L. Berthoud. Unlike pre-railroad towns such as Bellvue, Berthoud was laid out on a grid plan. The old depot, with an entry addition, has been converted to the Lions Clubhouse, 600 3rd Street (northeast corner of Massachusetts Avenue), but the original town hall (c. 1900), 328 Massachusetts Avenue, is still just that, with a newer library addition.
