Historical lectures educate and entertain for a 9th season
August 7, 2019
More than 35 lecturers covering a broad spectrum of topics have captivated and informed audiences since the start of the Niwot Historical Society’s (NHS) Niwot Now and Then lecture series in 2011. Originally, Niwot’s history was the focus; delving into such topics as the historical role of the trains, Chief Niwot’s life, and the legend of Haystack Mountain.
Gradually the lens of the lecture pulled out to explore more of Boulder County and the Front Range, examining archeological evidence of early Rocky Mountain habitation, baseball, and the American hobo.
