Largest CDP Highlands Ranch
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.
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)
