August already we made it through the stormy July days. Our lawns are thick and green.  This is why we love Colorado. "If you don't like the weather just wait it will change." 

MARK THE 2ND SATURDAY IN AUGUST ON YOUR CALENDARS!

HERITAGE DAY IS THIS DAY AND WE ARE HIGHLIGHTING SOME OF OUR ANTIQUE QUILTS AT THE BAUGH HOUSE ON 44TH AND ROBB ST. WE WILL BE OPEN FROM 10:00 A.M UNTIL 3:00 P.M.  IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN QUILTS WE HAVE EXAMPLES FROM THE CIVIL WAR TO PRESENT DAY.  MOST OF OUR OLDER QUILTS ARE HAND MADE.  

WE WILL BE DISPLAYING THEM IN THE BAUGH HOUSE A FEW WE HOPE WILL BE ON THE PORCH.  PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND OTHER ARTISTS. WE ARE ASKING A $2.00 DONATION.

We are pleased to announce we now have an employee the city has hired part time.  Her name is Jane Harvey.  She will be keeping the musuem open Tuesdays through Friday. The Baugh House by appointment. Stop by and say hello, you will find her as delightful as we do.  Welcome Jane. 

Update on Fruitdale School.  The Housing Authority gave the building to the Rocky Mtn Phoenix School on which is located on the South Frontage Road and Miller St.  We are thrilled.  We would have liked to see the building used as a cultural art center however, a school is what it was intended for so we are pleased that the Authority made such a wise decision. Please check the Denver Post Wheat Ridge Hub this Thursday August 7th for an article about the building.

The Wheat Ridge Historical Society has been working on a list of houses built before 1920.The project is now finished. Backup information that we have (we do not have further information on all the houses and buildings) is at the museum and at City hall. The last column will let you know if there is further information. Please feel free to contact the Historical Society if you would like to have your house to be a Local Landmark.  The benefits are.  It makes your house more valuable without raising your taxes, and you may be eligible for grants from the Colorado State Gambling Funds. The Historical Society has that information at the museum. Contact us at 303-421-9111 or we are open on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  come and visit us.
