History
The Town of Lochbuie was incorporated in 1974 in both Weld County and Adams County.  

Along the Weld-Adams County line Gordon McClain owned land next to  Interstate 80 South and in 1961 developed a 12-acre mobile home  subdivision. It was named Spacious Living, nicknamed Space City. In  1974, to be able to improve their water and sewer systems, residents  voted to incorporate, naming their new town Lochbuie. McClain's  grandparents' ancestral home was Lochbuie, Isle of Mull, Scotland. In  Scottish-Gaelic the spelling would be Locha Buidhe, meaning Lake of the  Fair-haired Clan.

Highway Interstate 80 South was officially renumbered Interstate 76 in  July, 1976. It remains a regional highway around which the Town of  Lochbuie has grown, into both Weld and Adams County. The I-76 Corridor  is a critical link to the rest of the United States by connecting I-80  and I-70, two of the longest interstate routes in the nation.
