Ranchers and families seeking a private, secluded home on acreage with dark, starry skies and majestic mountain views call Elbert county home. Located southeast from the Denver metro area, Elbert county and its largest cities, Elizabeth, Kiowa and Elbert, are typically viewed as traditional working wheat or cattle ranch communities. Each city has a very small-town feel where high school sports are thetalk of the town and locals hit their favorite Mexican or burger joint for drinks and laughter after the big game.

Elbert County is served by the Elbert School District #200, C-2 and the largest public school district, Elizabeth School District C-1.
