Broomfield is located northwest of the Denver Metro area. The city was incorporated in 1961. It is believed to have earned its name from the broomcorn grown in the area, a tall sorghum that farmers sold for use in brooms and whiskbrooms.
Initially, the city was in southeast Boulder County. After decades of annexation during which the city grew into the neighboring counties, the city was consolidated into the City and County of Broomfield. This eliminated the need for four different court districts, county seats, and county sales tax bases. There were also political differences between the city and the Boulder County, which impelled it to separate.
