Boulder is on U-l2, on the eastern part of the Aquarius Plateau. Almon Thompson of the Powell survey named the town Boulder after the nearby mountain. It was settled between 1889 and 1894, even though cattle had been brought into the area as early as 1879. At that time, Nichole Johnson and August Anderson of Richfield brought in five hunted head to graze on Bolder Mountain. Except for pack train or horseback, Boulder was isolated until 1935 when the U.S. Civilian Conservation Corps completed a road that Could be used by wagons and automobiles.
