Anchored by county seat Fort Morgan, Morgan County is the home of thriving small towns and beautiful prairie scenery.
Fort Morgan is famed as the childhood home of music legend Glenn Miller. Visitors can learn about his life and the history of the area at the expertly curated Fort Morgan Museum. Fort Morgan’s beautiful Rainbow Arch Bridge over the South Platte River was built in 1923 and has remained a treasured city icon ever since. Near the bridge is Riverside Park, where locals love to unwind. Summer events include the Glenn Miller Swingfest and the free classic rock of the Bobstock Music Festival, both in July, and the free Thursday Night Concert Series.
The town of Brush comes alive for the Morgan County Fair and the three-day Fourth of July Parade and Rodeo in the summertime, and a fun fall happening during Oktoberfest. The East Morgan County Library hosts the seasonal People’s Market on Wednesdays, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., offering a bounty of locally grown produce and other goodies.
Wiggins is home to the Longmeadow Game Resort and Event Center, a sportsman’s paradise with opportunities to hunt elk and white-tailed deer, coyotes and prairie dogs, ducks and geese, and pheasants, doves and turkeys. Jackson Lake State Park offers boating and fishing. For more information, please visit Morgan County.
