Buying a Home in Jefferson County, Colorado?

Ingrained into the very fabric of the county is its much more noble beginnings. Taking the name of the third U.S. president Thomas Jefferson, the county was formally organized in 1861 by the Colorado Territorial Legislature.

The need for an organized local government began in the late 1850s when droves of gold-seeking settlers came West. In 1858, when gold was discovered in the Rocky Mountains, there were fewer than 200 settlers in the area. An influx of nearly 35,000 people arrived two years later, lured by the glitter of gold.

Once an agricultural and mining area, Jefferson County, Colorado now is a thriving suburban, business, industrial and residential community. It's a place where the great plains meet the Rocky Mountains with some of the most magnificent scenery in the country. We have rolling grasslands and craggy rock formations, natural foothills, rugged mountains and tumbling mountain streams.

 

  The Landscape
Jefferson County is a place filled with magnificent wonders only nature can provide. Not ignoring its agricultural and mining roots, Jefferson County has worked to create a delicate balance between that past while supporting a thriving business community and providing for safe neighborhoods.

General boundaries for the county include West 120th Avenue in Westminster on the north, Sheridan Boulevard on the east, and Pike National Forest to the south. The county extends west into the mountains to meet Gilpin, Clear Creek and Park counties.
