History of Broomfield, Colorado
The city of Broomfield got its start in the 1870's when it was a rail stop between Denver, Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming. In 1885, Adolph J. Zang, whose father owned the Zang Brewery in Denver, bought 4,000 acres from the Union Pacific Railroad and began a large farming operation. The community eventually became known as Zang's Spur, and by 1900, was teeming with about 50 residents. It was later named after the local farms' major crop—broom corn—which was used to make brooms.
Broomfield is located just off Hwy. 36, about 8 miles southeast of Boulder. The city was incorporated in 1961, and housed approximately 4,500 residents at the time. On Nov. 15, 2001, Broomfield officially became a county as well as a city.
