The Town of Nederland, locally known as "Ned", is a Statutory Town located near Barker Meadow Reservoir in the mountains of southwest Boulder County, Colorado, United States. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 1,445.HistoryGold was discovered in 1859, along Boulder Creek at the confluence of South Boulder and Beaver Creeks, called Deadwood Diggings, and six miles northeast, called Gold Run.Nederland was established in 1874. The town started as a trading post between Ute Indians and European settlers during the 1850s. The town's first economic boom came when minerals such as tungsten, silver, and gold were discovered near Tungsten (east of Nederland), Caribou (northwest of Nederland, 1859), and Eldora (west of Nederland, 1875).Today Nederland is better known as a gateway to outdoor recreation in the nearby Indian Peaks Wilderness, Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest, and the recently established James Peak Wilderness. Nederland is located west of Boulder, south of Estes Park, and northwest of Denver at the Junction of SH 119 and SH 72 on the Peak to Peak Highway.
