Burlington, Colorado is the county seat in Kit Carson County. Originally built in 1887, it was a mile west of where it is now by a man who was taking advantage of his knowledge of the coming Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. It turned out that he not only had the location wrong, but he did not own the land. The railroad company built its own depot where the city currently sits and the businesses which had been built a mile away moved their buildings to the new site.
