Founded in 1850, Boulder Creek City grew slowly until the flood of 1894. The flood had wiped out much of the city's agricultural infrastructure, and Boulder was cut off from the rest of the state. In the late nineteenth century, the city's red light district stretched between the Municipal Building and the Boulder Public Library. It later moved to upstairs rooms in the city's business district.

The city was named after Chief Niwot, the tribe leader of the Arapaho. In 1894, Oliver Toussaint Jackson purchased a farm near Boulder, and he built a home at 2228 Pine Street. He also opened a restaurant on Thirteenth Street and at the corner of Fifty-Fifth and Arapahoe streets. His restaurant's popularity led to the founding of the city's first all-black agricultural settlement, Dearfield, and the development of the surrounding area.
