Tour of NARA 

Tuesday May 7  10 AM

Were you aware that we have a branch of the National Archives and Records Administration right here in Broomfield?  Formerly located in west Denver, now on Huron Street, it houses nearly 50,000 cubic feet of original archival records dating from  1847 to the 1990s.  While many of the records held are local to our region, there is also a Microfilm/Genealogy Room with Federal records as well as computers with free access to Ancestry and Fold3.  The tours are always interesting!

If you’re interested in attending this tour, please visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BroomfieldGenSoc/  or email our Activities Chair, Pattie Apple, garyandpattie@msn.com to RSVP.

Historic Walk Through Old Superior

Superior Historical Museum  110 W Maple St, Superior, CO 80027

Another annual event is our very popular “Historic Walk Through Old Superior” which will be held after the museum closes on May 4th. This walk takes us to the homestead and farm buildings in Grasso Park, then on south to the site of the Industrial Mine and Mine Camp. Commission volunteers will lead the walk telling history stories along the way. At the mine site, many foundations are still visible and volunteers will explain what buildings they were associated with and point out the actual spot where the coal mine shaft is located. The walk begins shortly after closing at 2 p.m. on May 5th. Come early and visit the museum before the walk. Participants should plan on walking 2-3 miles over uneven terrain containing cacti and yucca plants along with old scrap metal. In other words, please wear strong shoes or hiking apparel.
