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.Castle Rock was founded in 1874 when the eastern Douglas County border was redrawn to its present location.
