Facts about Nederland
Nederland, is a statutory town located near Barker Meadow Reservoir in the foothills of southwest Boulder County, Colorado, United States.
In the mid-19th century the first homesteaders gave a variety of names for the area. The town was first called Dayton, then Browns Crossing. In 1871, when the US Postal Service first set up an office, the name was changed to Middle Boulder after the creek that flows through the center of town (and continues eastward to become Boulder Creek).
In 1873 the Caribou Mine, at an elevation of roughly 10,000 feet (3,000 m) and 6 miles (10 km) northwest of the town, was sold to the Mining Company Nederland from the Netherlands. The high elevation meant fierce winds and deep winter snow, so the new owners of the mine decided that it was beneficial to bring ore from Caribou down to Middle Boulder for milling. In the Dutch language, Nederland ("Netherlands" in English) means low land, and based on casual usage by the Dutch miners, Middle Boulder came to be known as Nederland. (This is ironic, considering that the town's elevation is higher than 8,000 feet (2,400 m) and a significant part of the Netherlands is near or even below sea level.) In 1874 the town was incorporated and adopted Nederland as the official name.
As of the census of 2010, there were 1,445 people, 657 households, and 349 families residing in the town. The population density was 954 people per square mile (368.4/km²). There were 749 housing units at an average density of 499.3 per square mile (192.1/km²). The racial makeup of the town was 95.5% White, 0.4% African American, 0.7% Native American, 0.8% Asian, 0.9% some other race, and 1.7% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.1% of the population.
