County was one of the original 17 counties created by the General
Assembly of the Territory of Colorado on 1861-11-01, although it was
originally named Guadalupe County and renamed Conejos County a week
later, on November 7. It was named after the Conejos River in the area.
Also early in its existence, the county seat was moved from the town of
Guadalupe to Conejos. The original boundaries of the county included a
large portion of southwestern Colorado. In 1874, most of the western
and northern portions of the county were broken away to form parts of
Hinsdale, La Plata and Rio Grande counties, and Conejos County achieved
its modern borders in 1885 when its western half was taken to create
Archuleta County. [source: Wikipedia]
