Arapahoe County Grows with DTC and Homes

Arapahoe County was named for the Arapahoe Indians who had inhabited eastern Colorado. Originally, the county extended all the way to the Kansas/Colorado border.

Today, Arapahoe County is a land of contrast. It spans 850 square miles, has a population of more than 500,000 and is one of Denver’s fastest growing neighbors. While three-fourths of the County is rural, the western part of the County is largely urban with wonderful communities that have accommodated the influx of latter day settlers. Industrial growth included the Martin Marietta plant.

DTC and Rural Ranches

The Denver Technological Center (DTC), Centennial Airport and Greenwood Plaza are huge complexes, which house offices of world famous corporations. The eastern end of the county remains largely rural with wheat farms and a few cattle and sheep ranches.
