Located in the state of Colorado and a Home Rule Municipality in Boulder and Welder counties, Longmont is situated in the northeast of Boulder’s county seat and at the north-northwest of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. The name of the city came from the Longs Peak, a prominent mountain that was named for the explorer Stephen H. Long whose figure is visible from Longmont, and the word “mont” came from the French word “Montagne” which means mountain. During the 1960s, an air traffic control was built by the federal government in Longmont, and it opened the doors to companies who will settle their business office or operations in the city. When the agriculture industry started to wane, more high-technology came to the city, which includes IBM, Seagate, and Amgen.
