Boulder History Museum
My last stop in Boulder was the Boulder History Museum. The museum is housed in the Harbeck-Bergheim house built in 1899 in an eclectic style.
Beautiful architectural details included this fancy front doorknob
and stained glass window.
When I was planning my trip, I somehow got the idea that they had a lot of textiles or costumes or something cloth-related at the museum. I didn't get that quite right, but it was an interesting museum - and I did find one bit of cloth that was probably handwoven. (I should note that despite looking around this entire display, I didn't find one word about this cloth. I'm telling you everything I know about it!)
By the end of all of this exploring, I was too tired to make my planned trip to historic downtown Boulder, or to Gypsy Wools. Maybe next time!
