ghost walk

In odd numbered years Historic Boulder has enactments of the people who once lived in selected historic homes. Fittingly the event occurs in October, when ghosts are known to materialize.

When gold was discovered in Gold Run in January 1859, word spread like wild-fire and “Fiftyniners” flocked to the area to seek their fortunes. The town of Gold Hill became the first mining camp in Colorado, and Boulder was founded a month later to support the mines in Gold Hill. In 1872 the town moved to its current site when a rare mineral Tellurium was discovered and a second burst of mining activity supported a thriving community, including a 3-story luxury hotel. In 1922 the hotel was purchased by a group of women dubbed “The Bluebirds” dedicated to providing retreats for young working women from the factories of Chicago…the Bluebird Lodge has been restored and can be visited during the Ghost Walk at Gold Hill tour. The town has gone through booms and busts, but today stands as one of the finest Historic Districts in the state.

Visitors will learn and explore its history at Historic Boulder’s special event in and around Gold Hill’s historic district – Just 10 miles up in the mountains above Boulder!
