Founded November 1, 1861
Named for Stephen A. Douglas
Seat Castle Rock
Largest CDP Highlands Ranch
One of the original 17 counties created
in the Colorado Territory , it was
named in honor of Stephen A. Douglas, who had died earlier that year. The county's borders extended all the way to the Kansas border, but was reduced in size with the creation of new counties. The county seat was originally Franktown, but was moved to California Ranch in 1863, and then to Castle Rock in 1874.
Located midway between Colorado's two largest cities, Denver and Colorado Springs, Douglas County is now one of the fastest growing counties in the country. (source: wikipedia)
