A Brief history of Broomfield The creation of the City of Broomfield actually started with a man named Adolf Zang who purchased a piece of land in 1885. Back in 1881, tracks for the Denver, Utah and Pacific Railroad were laid in the general vicinity. They called the area Zang’s Spur. Adolf saw an opportunity to create a train stop in the location and seize it. Adolf would load the trains with local grain called Broomcorn, move it down the spur to the main railroad line and have it delivered in Denver to the Zang Brewing Company.

Zang’s spur was the beginning of the town of Broomfield. People began moving to the area shortly before the beginning of the 1900s. The town received its name from the Broomcorn that was growing in the area. It had everything a little town needs, including a grocery, a hotel, bank, a filling station, barbershop, lumber yard, pickle factory and other businesses.

Broomfield experienced little spurts of growth from 1885 to the 1950s. The one thing that really turned the city around and gave it life was the Boulder Turnpike being built. The Turnpike Land Company also had a lot to do with the development of the communities in Broomfield. The city was well on its way by 1961 when it was actually incorporated. The city planning and development commission decided it needed to have a retail sales tax base to further the city and soon after, they developed the Flatiron Crossing Mall. Broomfield is now the 64th county in the state of Colorado. It has thrived through all the challenges that it had in the beginning. The city continues to grow and change with the times.
