Broomfield, Colorado is a Denver suburb that makes it easy to work in Denver but live outside the city. Broomfield was incorporated as a city in 1961, but had always had parts of its 33.6 square miles lying in 4 different counties. That’s confusing, so in the late 90’s they made state history by petitioning for an amendment to the state constitution to become its own county, called the City and County of Broomfield. Here are some other fun Broomfield facts.
