Historical Background - Natives of Sweden, Charles A. Fagerberg and Anna Louise Bolander Fagerberg came to Loveland, Colorado on November 1, 1881. Charles was a pioneer in ditch building in the Loveland area. Over the years, the Fagerbergs were involved in agriculture in Weld County, including owning two farms three miles west of Lucerne and another eight miles east of Eaton. Charles A. Fagerberg retired from farming in 1909. Charles, his wife Anna, and their daughters Agnes and Alice moved into 1210 9th Avenue in 1922. He died in October 1935, having lived in the Greeley area for the last thirty years of his life.
