About Julesburg

Julesburg is located in Sedgwick County and sits along the South Platte River. The city got its start as a Pony Express stop and it was once known as the “Wickedest City in the West.” Julesburg was home to horse thieves, gamblers and con artists who were attracted by the saloons and dance halls that lined the streets during the time that the Pacific Railroad ran through town.  

Today, Julesburg is a quaint town that offers residents and visitors great fishing along the South Platte and amazing bird watching. Julesburg has shopping, restaurants, and museums for the whole family to enjoy. Julesburg is much more than only a friendly town.
