News and Updates
Greeley's Historic Preservation Commission sponsors activities throughout the year to educate our community about historic preservation—from workshops on preserving antique hardware and wood frame windows, to FREE summer walking tours through Greeley's historic neighborhoods. Please see the 2014 Events Calendar to view the 2014 History Brown Bag Series and walking tours.
History Brown Bag Presentations
Greeley History Museum, Community Room, 714 8th Street
Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Please plan to join us for the FREE 2014 History Brown Bag Series held on the 4th Thursday of each month from January through October. The Brown Bags are from Noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the Greeley History Museum, 714 8th Street.
The next Brown Bag is Thursday, March 27th when Dr. Michael Welsh, UNC History Professor, will speak about the Environmental History of Rocky Mountain National Park and its connection to Greeley.
If you have a presentation related to history, local history, old buildings, and/or historic preservation and would be interested in presenting at a History Brown Bag in 2014 or doing a special presentation to the public, please contact Betsy Kellums at the Greeley Historic Preservation Office, 350.9222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walking tours typically take place on the first Monday of each month beginning in June. The tours provide citizens a chance to hear about and see interesting sites with historical and cultural significance to Greeley. The 2013 walking tours focused on the University District neighborhoods, where the Historic Preservation Commission invited the public to share stories and memories of the neighborhoods on the tours and learn about the University District and oral history project.
If you have ideas for areas and sites for future walking tours, please contact Betsy Kellums at the Greeley Historic Preservation Office, 350.9222 or email@example.com.
