El Paso County was one of the original 17 counties created by the Colorado legislature on November 1, 1861. It was given the Spanish name of "the pass", referring to the Ute Pass west of Colorado Springs. Part of its western territory was broken off to create Teller County in 1899. Originally based in Old Colorado City (now part of Colorado Springs, not today's Colorado City between Pueblo and Walsenburg), El Paso County's county seat was moved to Colorado Springs in 1873.
