Conejos County
1883 map
Conejos County was one of the original 17 counties created by General Assembly of the Territory of Colorado on 1861-11-01, althought 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.
