Elbert County was formed in 1874, named after Samuel Hitt Elbert, Colorado's territorial governor and State Supreme Court Justice. Our little town was also named after Samuel Hitt Elbert just as our tallest peak and our county. The town of Elbert grew along side of the Railroad tracks of the Colorado and Southern, Denver and New Orleans, Rock Island. It was a busy business center in the middle of some of the best farms and ranches in Colorado until a flood swept away most of the town on May 31, 1935. Elbert never recovered from the flood, but it is again blossoming in it's own right. Buildings and homes are being restored and as in all small towns it is the people who give this sleepy little town it's personality.

Elbert is a small prairie town located about 35 miles SE of Parker, Colorado and 35 miles NE of Colorado Springs.  Elbert never recovered from the flood but in the last 5 years Elbert has come into its own again! Many of the houses that were let go have been repaired and restored. The small business section of town is growing with locally owned small business. Browse through our website and perhaps you will learn a little more about Elbert of today that you didn't know even if you have lived here forever!
