Jefferson County is a place where the great plains meet the Rocky Mountains — with some of the most magnificent scenery in the country, from rolling grasslands and craggy rock formations to natural foothills, rugged mountains and tumbling mountain streams.

This is a place filled with magnificent wonders only nature can provide and a past that is just as rich. Not ignoring its agricultural and mining roots, Jefferson County has worked to create a delicate balance between that past while supporting a thriving business community and providing for safe neighborhoods.

Located just west of Denver where the great plains meet the Rocky Mountains , Jefferson County is home to some of the most magnificent scenery in the country: 774 square miles of rolling grasslands, craggy rock formations, and rugged mountains with tumbling mountain streams and lofty pines.

Plenty of both mom and pop shops and Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here. Just as varied is the housing that is available.

Jeffco citizens make their homes on mountain tops as well as in suburban communities.
