     Boulder County was one of the original 17 counties created by the Territory of Colorado on 1861-11-01. The county was named for Boulder City and Boulder Creek, so named because of the abundance of boulders in the area. The county seat is the City of Boulder.  Boulder County retains essentially the same borders as in 1861, although a 27.5 square miles (71.2 km˛) of its southeastern corner and its approximate population of 40,000 became part of the City and County of Broomfield in 2001. 

     Counties that lie adjacent to Boulder are: Larimer County - north; Weld County – east; City and County of Broomfield, Colorado – southeast; Jefferson County – south; Gilpin County – south; and Grand County – west.
