"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness and the most disquieting loneliness." -- Alex Haley
A Little History
Boulder County is the sixth most populous of the 64
Colorado Counties. The county seat is Boulder. The county
was named for both Boulder Creek and Boulder City. Settlers
arrived at Boulder Creek on October 17, 1858 and built 11
cabins at Red Rocks near the entrance of Boulder Canyon.
Boulder City was organized less than a year later, on
February 10, 1859. Boulder County was originally called
Jackson County by the Jefferson Territorial officers who
authorized nine counties in 1860. Jefferson Territory was
superseded in 1861 by Colorado Territory and Jackson County
was renamed Boulder County.
