Additional Information:

Visit The James F. Bailey Wall Street Assay Office Museum for a glimpse into Boulder County’s mining history. At the turn of the 20th century, hard rock mining in Boulder County was in full swing, and the area known as Wall Street played a prominent role in this chapter of our community's history. 

The assay office was the place where prospectors would take their ore samples to find out whether or not they had potentially “struck it rich.” The determination of the assayer could, and often did, make or break a prospector.
The building at this site served as both an assay office and family residence, and the museum depicts both functions. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
