The city of Denver was, in the earliest years, located in
Arapahoe County.  By 1901 the people of the "Mile High City" believed that Denver should govern herself and they left Arapahoe County to form the "City and County of Denver."  In 1902 the state recognized Denver as a separate county.  In the one hundred three years since, Denver has spilled over into the surrounding counties and has fulfilled the dreams of her founders beyond their wildest expectations.  For a history and/or timeline of Denver see Denver History.
