Lamar is a Home Rule Municipality and county seat of Prowers County, Colorado, United States. The city population was 8,869 at the U.S. Census 2000. The city was named after Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar (Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar II) during the period that he was Secretary of the Interior in the futile hope that the then town would be named as the land office.
