Day 12 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Historic Plaque

In 1977, the city of Boulder recognized the Hotel Boulderado as an official landmark, but it wasn't until 1995 that we were placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our architecture and history helped, but the real reason we made the list was because of the community. It was the community that came together in the early 20th century to raise money and build the Hotel Boulderado. Since then, we have remained a site for the community to come together to meet and celebrate; in fact, the Chamber of Commerce and the Western Union office were both located here for many years.
