The history of Nakuru County is colorful and splendid. The county’s rich history is joined at the hip with that of the entire nation. When the Kenya-Uganda railway line was constructed, although heavily criticized as the Lunatic Express or a road to nowhere, it had a profound impact on the creation of the nation today known as Kenya. As the nation grew, Nakuru Town also developed out of the activities of the railroad as it was one of the major stopovers that encouraged the growth of business centers along the railway from Mombasa en route for Kisumu. Nakuru County was among the area that was annexed as white highlands, where many colonialists chose to settle.
