Cedaredge is perched on the southern slope of the Grand Mesa, straddling the mighty Surface Creek at the edge of the cedars. With a population of approximately 2300, this little town has a few distinctions that make it unique. Cedaredge is the site of three stacked wooden silos, some of the only examples left in the country. It is also well known for the large number of catalog houses to be found in Colorado. Also to be noted, Cedaredge is the location of some of the only known fossil remains of a mosasaur head, an ancient species from the sea. Located on the Grand Mesa National Scenic and Historic Byway, Cedaredge is the gateway to the Grand Mesa.
