Arapahoe County , Colorado – the state’s first county and one of the largest with a population of more than 500,000, was named for the Arapaho Indians, who along with the Cheyenne Indians, occupied most of Colorado when it was only a territory. Back then, Arapahoe County was much larger – stretching east to western Kansas. Denver was the original County seat until 1902 when the city split off and became a separate county. The City of Littleton became the new county seat and remains the county seat today. The County Administration Building is located at 5334 S. Prince Street in Littleton, Colorado. Arapahoe County has 1,755 employees and a $279.3 million budget. Arapahoe County has one of the lowest mill levies in the Front Range.

Arapahoe County is a great place to live, it's also a great place to work. Arapahoe County is home to some of the nation's largest companies. High tech, communication, military, government and service and retail industries, not to mention the Denver Tech Center and Centennial Airport, all provide thousands of jobs to residents living in Arapahoe County and the Denver Metro area.
