A county in Colorado that was immortalized in the novel and 1978 miniseries “Centennial” once again could achieve fame as it finds itself in a unique position among America’s counties – considering a bid to become the 51st state.

Weld County is one of the nation’s largest counties, and at nearly 3,000 square miles it is larger than the combined land areas of Rhode Island, Delaware and the District of Columbia. The county was also immortalized in James Michener’s “Centennial,” a novel about a fictitious town whose history mirrored the history of the state.

County officials have made national news several times in recent months for their strong stand for constitutional rights including the Second Amendment. However, following a particularly contentious legislative session where Democrats controlled both chambers of the legislature as well as the governorship, the divide has gotten so great that county commissioners are seriously entertaining asking voters to decide if they want to secede and form the state of North Colorado.
