The Historic Preservation program balances private property rights with the public interest in protecting community assets that are important to Boulder’s history. There are more than 1,300 designated historic properties in Boulder, including 162 individual landmarks and 10 historic districts. Designating significant buildings and neighborhoods helps to preserve Boulder’s unique history, culture, and character for future generations.
