THE HISTORY OF
Boulder began as a mining camp on what would become known as Boulder Creek. In 1858, a small group of prospectors, led by Thomas Aikins, reached Boulder Canyon. Due to the sandstone cliffs, they called their site Red Rocks. They made friendly contact with the Niwot and Arapahoe tribes, while the Cheyenne’s, Utes, Kiowas, Comanches, and Sioux also frequently passed through the area.
When gold was discovered at Gold Run in 1859, Boulder City Town Company was put into motion. Organized in 1859, the company was made up by sixty shareholders and A.A. Brookfield, the first president for the company. The amount of rocks that had to be cleared away before settlers could build their homes, gave way to the name of the city – Boulder. It was appointed as the county seat in 1867.
With Native American revolts and the decrease of gold being found, there came hard years for the new settlers. Within a few years, the city would gain two railroads and a university and was brought in under the Territorial Government. The Colorado Central Railroad and Denver-Boulder Valley Railroad reaching Boulder meant more opportunities for residents, new and old. The founders began a tree-planting plan, which also goes to show the city’s long dedication to environmental care.
