History

Around 1848, pioneers began farming the area around Deer Creek. The settlement moved a mile or so west to the site of present day downtown Crowley when the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad built pens and laid tracks there. The first station depot was built in 1885. The community was named for S.H. Crowley, who was the master of transportation for the railroad.
