History

There is no definitive information about where the city got its name, however, it is thought to have come from the broomcorn grown in the area that farmers sold for the manufacturing of brooms and whisk brooms.
Following its incorporation in 1961, the city continued growing and expanding across four different counties: Boulder, Jefferson, Adams and Weld. It wasn’t until the 1990’s that city leaders started discussing the idea of creating a separate county to help alleviate the complications and political differences that were inherent with the involvement of so many government entities. An amendment was finally passed in 1998 and, following a 3-year transition, Broomfield became Colorado’s 64th and smallest county in 2001.

Public schools are still divided among several school districts with the two largest being Adams 12 and Boulder Valley School Districts.
