Built by Exxon in the 1970’s, Battlement Mesa was intended to provide worker housing for a massive oil shale boom as Jimmy Carter’s Department of Energy pumped billions of dollars into oil shale exploration. That venture proved unviable and Exxon pulled out, leaving behind a beautiful community with a variety of neighborhood types. Battlement Mesa has since become a retirement mecca and also offers worker housing for busy Western Slope resort towns. The community has many outstanding amenities, including a beautiful 52,000-square-foot recreation center; 18-hole golf course; miles of Colorado River frontage and boat launch; easy access to National Forest lands; beautiful new medical clinic; new high school; and miles of walking trails and parks. It really is a very pleasant community. Battlement Mesa offers easy access to I-70, Grand Junction Regional Airport, and is only two hours to Aspen and Vail.
