Adams County in the northeastern part of the State; bounded on the north by Weld and Morgan counties, on the east by Washington County, on the south by Arapahoe County, and on the west by Jefferson and Boulder counties.

The area is 1,253 square miles, of which a considerable area in the western portion is under cultivation where the Union Pacific Railroad and the Burlington Route cross the county.
