In the beginning, the town of Edgewater, COlorado was just composed of a few saloons resting on the west edge of Sloan’s Lake. The lake itself, had an unusual beginning. In the early 1860's, A homesteader, Mr. Sloan, acquired a tract of land and began digging for a well. SLOAN unexpectedly tapped into an underground spring which flooded the plain and formed What is now Sloan’s Lake.
The founders, Ben and Josephine Di Pietro, started the business back in 1953. The Edgewater Inn, now located on the corner of 25th and Ames (Ben Di Pietro Way) was initially located in the building due west. In 1956 the old post office went up for sale and Ben and Jo jumped at their chance. The Di Pietro's purchased the building and began their work. They soon realized they wanted to turn this 3.2 bar into a fully functional bar / restaurant.
It wasn't easy. Ben and Jo had to petition everyone in the neighborhood. This required them to ask every household in Edgewater if they were in favor of having a local bar. This was quite a grueling task, but in the end Ben and Jo did in fact succeed in getting enough signatures and the Edgewater Inn was born and has gone on to become an institution in the city of Edgewater, CO.
