About Jefferson County Colorado

Jefferson County, Colorado is a county located in the state of Colorado. The county seat is Golden and the most populous city is Lakewood.

The county name is also the same as that of its county seat, Golden. It was named after President Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson County was created on November 15, 1861. It was formed out of the western portion of Boulder County. It originally included the area now occupied by Park County and Clear Creek County. A major coal strike occurred in Golden in 1884 that led to violent confrontations between miners and mine owners.

Jefferson County is home to two college towns: Arvada and Golden

Jefferson County’s southern border is along the north banks of the South Platte River. The county is bordered on the south by Douglas County. To the east, it is bordered by Clear Creek County and by Gilpin County, which contains the city of Central City. The county’s western border is along the Continental Divide.

The divide heads north into Wyoming and divides Jefferson County from Jackson County.

West of the continental divide, several mountain ranges are within the county, including the Bear Mountains, Stansbury Mountains, Indian Peaks, and Lookout Mountain.
