The New Cardinal Mine in Boulder County, circa 1900 

Historic Preservation

Boulder County is committed to identifying and preserving the rich history of the unincorporated areas of the county. Through our Comprehensive Plan, Land Use Code, and other policies we have created a program to document, protect, and preserve the varying historic resources in our jurisdiction (see Historic Preservation Background). The county staff and our Historic Preservation Advisory Board (HPAB) are available to assist property owners in researching their property history, determining whether it is eligible for landmark designation, identifying ways to preserve the property and finding financial incentives for preservation (also see information regarding alteration of historic structures).

There is a Historic Landmark Rehabilitation Grant Program that provides funding for rehabilitation of locally designated landmarks or contributing structures in local landmark districts.

The Land Use department is also in coordination with other historic preservation agencies.
