Day 239 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Antique Photo of Old Courthouse

The Hotel Boulderado is just across the intersection from the Boulder County Courthouse. But before the current structure, there was another courthouse on the same site. The courthouse seen in this antique photo began construction in 1899 and was finished. Then in 1932, a fire caught in one of the towers and burned the building to the ground. The daughter of our then-owner/general manager, Betsy Mark, brought her whole class home from school with her that day to watch the event from the Boulderado's porch.
