Home Is Where Henderson Is (and vice versa)
Henderson can be found in Adams County, Colorado. This town was once known as Henderson Island because it’s sort of an island. Though the town has dropped “Island” from its name, there are still some fabulous views of the river. A suburb of Denver, Henderson is a fine community to set up shop. Just like Denver, Henderson is a "mile high" city. Well, almost. At 5,023 feet it falls just shy of that. Poor Henderson. Not quite an island, not quite a mile high.

A Little Henderson History
Henderson's history is rife with drama. You see, back in the mid-1800s, a fellow by the name of Jack Henderson built a hotel and a trading post on Henderson Island in Adams County. As an editor and proprietor of a Kansas publication and a Confederate politician once accused of voter fraud, Henderson was no stranger to scandal. But he came up to Colorado to turn his life around and he became a lifesaver to many of the gold prospectors seeking their fortune in the Rockies. Henderson provided them with meat, clothing, tools, and other provisions.
Unfortunately, Jack Henderson's story ends in tragedy. He was killed by members of the Osage Tribe after he made the unfortunate mistake of crossing into their territory with loaded weapons. Though the man is long gone, his legacy lives on in, of course, the town’s name.
Henderson: Living Here Is A Rocky Mountain High
Today, Henderson is an unincorporated community made up of a tiny handful of elderly folks, farmers, and elderly farmers. The construction of the Adams County Fairgrounds, has helped bring commerce and residents from other cities in the Denver metropolis. Renters who move to Henderson will also have easy access to the rodeo and other shows and festivals that are held at the fairgrounds. The Adams County Fairgrounds solicits the help of volunteers and refuses them pay “not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless.” That's a pretty smooth slogan coming from a small time outfit like that. Not bad, Adams County, not bad.
What to See in Henderson
If rodeos and county fairs aren’t your thing, Henderson has much more entertainment to offer.
