  • Upcoming 1914 House closure evokes sadness, gratitude, concern, and a story

    Joan Schaefer|May 8, 2024

    "Shocked," "I can't believe it," and "Oh, no!" were community members' immediate reactions to last week's announcement that Old Town Niwot's beloved 1914 House restaurant will close at the end of July. The shock changed to both sadness and gratitude, and then to concern over the future of other restaurants in Niwot and Boulder County.

  • 1914 House - "There is opportunity here"

    Joan Schaefer|May 8, 2024

    Last Friday, soon after the upcoming closure of 1914 House was announced, Nick Mastronardi was feeling both nostalgic and proud of what his team had accomplished at 1914 House.

After purchasing the building in 2014, Mastronardi embarked on a complete remodel with the exception of maintaining the historic facade. He believes that creating a very warm,...

  • The nationwide worker shortage has come to Niwot

    Sydney Rothstein|Aug 3, 2022

    Business is anything but "as usual" in Niwot's business district. A nationwide worker shortage has left businesses everywhere struggling to maintain their typical working hours and functionalities, and many of the staple establishments in downtown Niwot have been affected by the shortage as well. At 1914 House, the worker shortage has affected all levels of employment, but the restaurant has been very fortunate to have had enough staff on hand thus far. Head Chef Justin Hirshfield shared his ins...

    You've likely driven past it many times, glancing at the impressive red brick Queen Anne-style house on 63rd Street, just south of Jay Road, without realizing its historic significance.

This is the story of Chambers Homestead/Fort Chambers, the Boulder County Poor Farm and Hospital. Many Indegenous peoples consider this land...

    Deborah Cameron|Apr 6, 2022

    When the community's "Small Town Big Heart" fundraising campaign to help Marshall fire victims kicked off during Apres Ski Weekend at the end of January, coordinator and NBA Vice-President Deborah Read Fowler expected that it could take through the summer to reach an ultimate goal of $100,000.

  • Can you build a better gingerbread house?

    Deborah Cameron|Dec 1, 2021

    It's December so gingerbread house decorating is easy to find in seasonal magazines and televised baking shows. Constructing them can be difficult and the best ones stand out because of their creator's use of candy, icing and sprinkles. Now the decorating skills of Niwot's community are being put to the test with the return of Niwot's annual Gingerbread House Decorating Contest. Local realtor Deborah Reed Fowler, of DRF Real Estate LLC, Colorado Landmark Realtors, created the contest last year...

  • Local resident compiles a history of Niwot restaurants

    Deborah Cameron|Oct 27, 2021

    Remember when Niwot Tavern used to be Flanagan's Pub? Or when Pinnochio's used to be Treppeda's? Or when 1914 House used to be Reverend Taylors? Though some may not realize it, Niwot has always been home to a large number of high-quality, diverse restaurants. Recently, local resident Laura Bloom has started to document the progression of one establishment to another beginning as far back as the 19th century.

    Deborah Cameron|Sep 22, 2021

    Niwot community pride was on display during last weekend's homecoming events.

  • Left Hand laurel – Chad Fletemeyer

    Vicky Dorvee|Aug 25, 2021

    To a lay person, the new downtown Niwot parking lot on Murray Street may seem like one of the simplest of construction projects. But don't be fooled....it took a lot of planning, red tape, managing, and time to get it to this stage. Integral in that process was this month's Left Hand Laurel recipient, Chad Fletemeyer. In July, the Niwot Local Improvement District (LID) was tapped for additional financial assistance owing to unforeseen expenses needed to comply with Boulder County mandates....

  • How does Niwot work? - Part 10

    Bruce Warren|May 12, 2021

    Eli Buzas brought the idea of forming an education foundation to Niwot High School from Florida when he moved to Colorado in 1991. Buzas, who died earlier this year of COVID-19 complications, envisioned a foundation that did more than provide scholarships to students. Other school foundations in the school district raised money for scholarships, but Buzas had in mind a foundation that could fund current projects as well as develop a long-range funding program. Through his leadership while workin...

  • Niwot Around the World Day

    Deborah Cameron|May 5, 2021

    For months, Niwot has been the site of a string of events to give residents a reason to safely gather during the pandemic and keep them in front of local businesses.

  • Niwot to have a local tasting tour

    Hannah Stewart|Sep 2, 2020

    It is a truth that food brings people together-family gatherings, casual business meetings, and first dates often occur with some sort of dining experience. Even pop-culture recognizes the level of importance of restaurants. Famously, in When Harry Met Sally, Marie (played by Carrie Fisher) said, "Restaurants are to people in the 80s what theatres were to people in the 60s." Dining out has become more complicated lately, especially in light of COVID. In response, the Niwot Business Association...

  • Familiar Faces: Alison, Seth and Bert Steele

    Kristen Arendt|Apr 29, 2020

    Niwot Market has long been a staple of the Niwot community. But in recent weeks, with grocery stores and grocery store employees deemed essential during the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, the market has perhaps played an even more critical role in the community's new normal. At its heart, Niwot Market is a family affair. And this can be seen in the way the Steele family has stepped up to protect their employees and support their community in recent weeks-from implementing curbside pickup to install...

  • The story behind the place: Lagerman, Nelson, and Ryssby-Swedish Legacies

    Amy Scanes-Wolfe|Apr 22, 2020

    The Homestead Act of 1862 turned the American West into a promised land for religiously and socially repressed Swedish Lutherans, who were coming off three years of crop failure. Around 1.3 million Swedes immigrated to the United States between 1862 and the early 1900s. But not all Swedish immigrants in Longmont acquired their land through the Homestead Act; at least one earned it by gratitude. In 1870, August Nelson accepted a job in the Blackhawk smelter. With help from his two brothers,...

  • Niwot businesses are changing hours and services due to coronavirus

    Mar 25, 2020

  • Thanksgiving traditions of the Left Hand Valley

    Amy Scanes-Wolfe|Nov 27, 2019

    Thanks to the Niwot Historical Society archives, we get a glimpse into Niwot's bygone Thanksgiving celebrations. On Nov. 22, 1957 "The Niwot Tribune" reported an evening church service at the EUB Church, a middle school rendition of "Wildcat Willie Carves the Turkey," and advertisements from Curtis Confectionary encouraging readers to "Start Now with Your Christmas Lay-Away." First and second grade teacher Dora Chappell reported, "Last Friday we made many vegetables and fruits for our Horn of...

  • Niwot Market Friday Night Dinners soar again

    Stacy Goresko, PhD, [email protected]|Jun 23, 2019

    Niwot Market’s Friday Night Dinners are back, bigger and better than ever. Comments from diners at last week’s dinner were a resounding thumbs up. Chuck, a regular at the dinners, summed it up well. “This is the complete package in that you get the music, the quality of the food and the overall spirit of our town. This is really the Niwot kind of chill.” The rave reviews never ended. Jim, another regular, poetically stated, “Just a great place to get together after a long hard day at work. The f...

  • Justin Hirshfield – Familiar Face

    Vicky Dorvee, [email protected]|Apr 4, 2019

    When he was just 24 years old, Justin Hirshfield was likely the youngest head chef in Boulder at his gig with Laudisio’s Ristorante. Hirshfield is familiar to those in Niwot because of his 12 years working at the Niwot Market where he could be spotted most days. But, about a year and a half ago he joined the team at 1914 House as their head chef, so now it’s the evening crowd that’s most likely to see him. You may never have crossed paths with Hirshfield when he didn’t have a hat on his head or...
