History & History Related Items

Castle Rock history:

This sheltered area as far as weather was concerned was visited mostly by Native Americans looking for wild game for food. White settlers came first because of the Homestead Act of 1864. One of these original homesteaders was Jeremiah Gould. After the official designation of Castle Rock as the county seat, he donated 120 acres for the town. Lots were auctioned off and streets were laid out. The first six streets were named Jerry, Wilcox, Elbert, Perry, Castle and Front.


Castle Rock is named after a small, very visible, butte just north of the town. It is located on East Plum Creek. Though just a small stream, it sometimes floods the area.
