In the early years of Boulder City, mining played an extremely important role in the town's development. It continued to bring settlers into the area who were both involved in mining itself and in supporting facilities, such as hardware and mining supply stores, transport businesses, room and board houses, and gambling and drinking establishments. Soon a strong agricultural industry, including grain milling, began to develop.
By November 1871, the town was incorporated. The first residential areas appeared in the Downtown, Mapleton Hill and Whittier Districts. But as the Downtown commercial activities expanded, the houses began to disappear Downtown, and finer homes were built in the Mapleton Hill and Whittier areas.
Boulder's roots in education began in 1860, when the first schoolhouse in Colorado was erected at the southwest corner of Walnut and 15th Street. Also in 1860, the town's prominent citizens lobbied strongly with the State Legislature to have the State University located here. They succeeded, and on November 7, 1861, legislation was signed to that effect. It was not until 1872 that six local citizens made an actual site available, due to their generous donation of 44.9 acres. Two years later, the State Legislature appropriated $15,000 for the construction of the University, with the stipulation that there be a matching donation by the community. The first building to be constructed with this money still stands today, and is called Old Main, which housed the entire University, including classrooms, a library, auditorium and the President's living quarters. Old Main was built on the southern end of town, in an area known as "The Hill." The University of Colorado opened its doors in September of 1877, to one building, forty-four students, one professor and a President. As the University grew to a population of 6,000 students in the early 1900's, the area around the campus known as "The Hill" began to expand. The has become one of the most popular neighborhoods our Boulder real estate agency covers.
Boulder was now well on its way, and was taking on the features of an established town. The first bank opened in 1874, and by 1880, the population had grown to 3,000 as developers had laid out 17 additions to the town. Electricity was made available to the citizens in 1887, and three years later the railroad depot was constructed, providing a new urban sophistication to the use of railroads in the community.
In the 1950's, 60's and 70's the town began to boom with big business. Companies like IBM and Ball Aerospace (a subsidiary of Ball Corporation) moved to Boulder and created many new jobs for the town's growing population, and helped establish long-standing local real estate agencies like ours.
Companies and schools alike also sprung up from Boulder's own. Celestial Seasonings was started by Mo Siegel, and has become one of the world's largest producers of tea.
Today, the city has more than 100,000 residents in addition to nearly 30,000 University of Colorado students. Boulder is as beautiful now as ever, and due to well thought out planning and preservation, the community has not lost its individuality or uniqueness as a beautiful place to work and play. The town is now famous for its value of environmental preservation, education, and quality of life.
