History

The City of Boulder began as a small mining camp on the banks of what became known as Boulder Creek. The first settlers, a party of prospectors led by Thomas Aikins, reached the mouth of Boulder Canyon in the fall of 1858. They called their campsite "Red Rocks" because of the red sandstone cliffs. Friendly contact was made with Chief Niwot and the Arapahoe tribe. The Cheyennes were also indigenous to the area, while other tribes such as the Utes, Kiowas, Comanches and Sioux were occasional visitors.

In January 1859, gold was discovered in the area west of the present Gold Hill community and approximately 12 miles northwest of Boulder. This stimulated the Boulder City Town Company, which was organized in 1859 by the company's first president, A.A. Brookfield, and 60 partners. In 1867, the city of Boulder was assigned as the county seat and Boulder was named after the many unwieldy rocks the original residents had to clear from the land before they could begin construction on their homes.

As a result of a brief Native American uprising and the decline of the nearby gold mining, the new community sustained several difficult years. However, Boulder was revitalized with the prospects of a new railroad and a university, and the town was incorporated under the Territorial Government. Both the Colorado Central Railroad and the Denver-Boulder Valley Railroad reached the city no more than two years later. It was clear early on that Boulder would hold a long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship as the founding fathers began a tree-planting program and the mountains and plains provided outdoor enthusiasts with a venerable playground of opportunities.
