CELEBRATE

“The highest reward for a man’s toil is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it.”

- John Ruskin

All work and no play makes preservation a dull game! We try to celebrate our historic places regularly through annual member parties, exciting programs for the community, and through awards and honors. We hope you are able to join us!

HISTORY ESSAY SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST

We are currently developing a scholarship program for high school students who are interested in local history. This small scholarship will be granted to the winner of an essay contest, with a new history topic to be determined each year. The program is expected to roll out sometime in the 2020 - 2021 school year. More details to follow!

ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

Our bylaws require Historic Boulder to hold an annual membership meeting in February in order to vote on the annual budget, proposed changes, and incoming members of the Board of Directors. Once we take care of business, we spend some time to recognize the extraordinary efforts of members of the community  with our Joyce Davies Lifetime Preservation Award and our Volunteer Award. 

HOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS TOUR

Our signature winter home tour has been one of Boulder's favorite holiday traditions for over 30 years. The tour features a handful of grand historic homes, centered around a theme, that have been gorgeously decorated for the occasion by local florists. You can also expect historic information, live entertainment, and local artisans. 

SUMMER MEMBER APPRECIATION PARTY

This party is our one opportunity in the year for our members to get together with absolutely no agenda, other than to enjoy each other's company and nosh on goodies at a Boulder landmark!

MEET THE SPIRITS CEMETERY TOUR

We have the privilege of partnering with Boulder's Parks and Recreation Department to bring the past to life at Columbia Cemetery with this one-of-a-kind tour. Visitors can enjoy re-enactments of some of Boulder's most memorable events and characters, plus readings from psychics, tales from paranormal investigators, and more! This event takes place on even-numbered years in late October - for optimal spookiness, of course.

PRESERVATION MONTH ACTIVITIES

"Every year in May, local preservation groups, state historical societies, and business and civic organizations across the United States celebrate Preservation Month through events that promote historic places and heritage tourism, and that demonstrate the social and economic benefits of historic preservation."

- National Trust for Historic Preservation
