Platteville (1875, 4,820 feet) arose as an agricultural center near the site of a nowreconstructed 1830s fur fort ( WE33). One of its landmarks is the huge Public Service Company Fort St. Vrain Nuclear Plant, the only one ever built in Colorado, now being converted to a steam plant after multi-million-dollar misadventures with nuclear energy.
