Hide Profile

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: This building was built at an earlier date than is indicated on the front facade. The Sanborn Insurance Maps show the building standing in 1883, which is the date of the first Sanborn Map of Boulder. It was constructed sometime before that date. Anthony Arnett owned the property in 1880 and may have built it. In 1899, Kenneth McDonald had the front torn down and remodeled. McDonald, a miner, ran a saloon here after remodeling.
