If you are not here for Apple Cider Day, I am sorry outside of a little spit of rain it has been delightful.  JoAnn and the bluegrass band have been playing old fashion tunes since before lunch.  Chris has her famous Green Chili with homemade bisquits hot off the old wood stove, yum yum.

Sonja has apple flap jacks with sugar and cinimmon cooking on the wood stove in the log cabin.  Lots and lots of apples are being pressed in the two old vintage cider presses. Corn cob pigs are being made by the children.  And now people are bobbing for apples what a lovely day.  As I sit here in the Museum I hear the kids laughing and playing and the adults catching up with old friends and neighbors as they sit around picnic tables.  A really lovely day.  More to come later.

Monday, 28 April 2008

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.

 The complete list is in the PDF file below click on it and it should open.
