Castle Rock is the Home Rule Municipality that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Douglas County, Colorado, United States. The town population was 48,231 at the 2010 United States Census, ranking Castle Rock as the most populous town (rather than city) in the State of Colorado. It is named for the prominent, castle tower-shaped butte near the center of town. The town is part of the Front Range Urban Corridor and is located midway between Denver and Colorado Springs.HistoryThe region in and around Castle Rock was originally home to the Arapaho and Cheyenne people. They occupied the land between the Arkansas and South Platte Rivers.White settlers were drawn to the area by rumors of gold and by land opened through the Homestead Act of 1862. However, it was the discovery of rhyolite stone, not gold, that ultimately led to the settlement of Castle Rock.
