Summit County was organized as one of the seventeen original Colorado
counties by the First Territorial Legislature on November 1, 1861. It
was named forthe many mountain summits in the county. Until February 2,
1874, its boundaries included the area now comprising Summit County,
Grand County, Routt County, Moffat County, Garfield County, Eagle
County, and Rio Blanco County. In 1874, the northern half of the
original Summit County was split off to form Grand County, with the
creation of Garfield and Eagle counties in 1883, Summit County arrived
at its present boundaries. (Source: Wikipedia)
