Tours & Talks

Get to know Larimer County

 

Historic Schools of Northern Colorado

When: March 10, 6:30 pm.

Where: Verboten Brewing, 127 E 5th St, Loveland.

Join us at Verboten Brewing in Loveland at 6:30 pm for a talk by local historian, Ken Jessen, on the historic schools of Larimer County. There are many that remain, though they’re no longer being used as school buildings. (Can you identify the school building above?)

Learn about the preservation of these buildings — some of which has been done by non-profit organizations, but most by private individuals. Some property owners have paid close attention to detail. Others have focused on adaptively reusing these buildings.

This is a great whirlwind armchair tour of historic buildings from throughout the county and the changes that they’ve gone through over time.

This talk is free and open to the public, so bring a friend!

Showing of the Documentary “The Greenest Building”

When: April 21, 6:30 pm.

Where: City Star Brewing, 321 Mountain Ave, Berthoud. 

Join Historic Larimer County in finding out how historic preservation can help contribute to environmentally conscious building practices. The documentary “The Greenest Building” will be shown followed by a discussion. This is a great opportunity to bring your historic preservation friends who don’t realize there’s an environmental connection. And it’s a great opportunity to bring your environmentalist friends who don’t realize historic preservation can play a pivotal role in saving the planet. 

We’re looking for a local brewery in which to show this video. Do you know of a place with a separate room that might be willing to host us? Let Meg know using the “Contact Us” link above. 

2020 Annual Members Meeting and Tour – Livermore

When: May 30

Where: We’re still working out the details, but we’ll hold our meeting in Livermore followed by a “drive to” tour of at least 3 historic sites within Livermore. 

It’s that marvelous time of year when Historic Larimer County celebrates all that it’s done over the past year, hands out awards to local preservationists and preservation projects, and then offers a group tour of historic sites. We were in Berthoud last year so this year we’re flipping to the other end of the county and checking out some historic places on private property that the general public isn’t generally able to see. Stay tuned for the full list and the location of our meeting. 

Historic Larimer County has been hosting tours and talks since the summer of 2017. If you would like to learn more about which places and topics have already been covered, check out our Past Events page. If you have a suggestion for a future tour or talk, or you just want more information about one of the tours or talks listed above, please get in touch with Sharon Danhauer, our events coordinator, through our Tours & Talks contact form.
