Florissant Colorado, while appearing to be a sleepy mountain community located at the highway crossroads of Hwy 24 & Teller 1, continues to grow to meet the needs of its population. Examples of growth include the addition of a new library offering multimedia opportunities, fast broadband, computer access; as well as, wireless access has brought residents closer to friends, relatives, and online education.
Florissant is also home to the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. Explore the past while learning about the future. The Fossil Beds also provide one of the prime elk viewing locations in Teller County. Mornings or evenings you’ll likely see elk grazing along the roadway and hiking trails.
