About the County
Morgan County is primarily a rural entity located on the high plains of northeastern Colorado The following cities are located in Morgan County:
Morgan County was formed in 1889 from part of Weld County. The county seat and most populous city is Fort Morgan. In 1865 the US Army established Camp Wardwell near the present site of Fort Morgan. Established to protect travelers and supplies going to and from Denver and the mining districts on the Overland Trait, it was renamed Fort Morgan in 1866 in honor of Colonel Christopher A. Morgan who had died earlier that year. The City of Fort Morgan was founded by a member of Greeley’s Union Colony in 1884 and became the county seat of Morgan County upon its founding in 1889. Morgan County has always and remains a rich agricultural area, but has experienced a modern “gold rush” of its own with the oil and gas boom having a large presence in Northeastern Colorado.
