Pearl Street, once Boulder’s commercial artery, has become its cultural heart and soul,” said Richard Foy, one of the designers of the Mall. Boulder began as a supply town for gold miners. Pearl Street was the main road from the plains up into the mountains and has served as the commercial city center for 100 years. Pearl Street was first established in the 1860s and thought to be named after the wife of one of the city founders. In 1977, the Pearl Street pedestrian mall was dedicated purely to foot traffic.
Presented by Historic Boulder’s Preservation Chair, Patrick O’Rourke and Executive Director, Leonard Segel, the tour will explain important historic buildings, tell stories of events here, and explain how historic preservation contributes to the Mall’s success.
