May is National Preservation Month

Preserving our historic resources is vital to maintaining the character and heritage of our City. Since its founding in 1859 its incorporation in 1871, the City has grown into a vital and diverse community with thriving neighborhoods, commerce, government, technology, and more.

Join the Historic Boulder this May for National Historic Preservation Month as we celebrate our rich history.

The Historic Boulder community will join thousands of individuals across the country to celebrate National Historic Preservation Month this May in a month-long celebration sponsored nationally by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and locally by Historic Boulder. “This Place Matters” is a national campaign associated with Preservation Month that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities.

There are several historic sites in Boulder listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic resources.

May brings walking tours, historical presentations and more.

Join Historic Boulder in our local celebrations and awareness:

Tag historic places on social media with #ThisPlaceMatters and #SaveBoulder to show some love for those special Boulder-area places.
