Welcome to Weld County, Colorado. Greeley is the county seat for Weld County. We are looking for Weld County biographies, photos, etc to post here. Please consider sharing with us your Weld County family history! We also need lookup volunteers who live in the area to help researchers.

Weld County was one of the original 17 counties in the Territory of Colorado which was formed in 1861 from parts of Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico and Utah Territories. The county was named after Lucius Weld, the first Territorial Secretary.

Although St. Vrain was the first county seat, over the next sixteen years the county seat was moved from St. Vrain to Latham to Evans to Greeley to Evans and by 1877 it was returned to Greeley where it remains today.
