History of Broomfield, Colorado

Broomfield High Schools: Broomfield High School, Legacy High School

Broomfield was incorporated in 1961, in what was then the southeastern corner of Boulder County. It’s most likely the city’s name came from the broomcorn grown in the area that farmers sold for use as brooms and whisk brooms. Over the next three decades, the city grew through annexations, many of which crossed the Boulder county line into four adjacent counties: Adams, Jefferson and Weld.

In the 90s, Broomfield leaders began to seek an amendment to the Colorado State Constitution to create a new Broomfield County to avoid the inefficiencies of dealing with four separate court districts, four different county seats, and four separate county sales tax bases. Broomfield also had longstanding political differences with Boulder County (home of the “People’s Republic”) which impelled it to separate. The amendment was passed in 1998, starting a three-year transition period. In November 2001, Broomfield County became the 64th county of Colorado, and the smallest county in terms of geographic area.
