Music will be provided by JoAnn and her Pick up Band. Bring your instrument and play some old fashioned music.

The White Family are planning on a family reunion at the Park.  Their Family owned the Soddy and property from 1895 until 1939. Some fun and interesting stories are planned about this great family.

August 2015,


Well July past me so fast I forgot to update this website. It was a very busy month at the museum. We had over 84 visitors to the Historic Park. Our numbers keep going up, Thank you Jane for the excellent job. Remember we do ask for a $2.00 per person for tours of the buildings and the Baugh House. Talking about History is free.  I havenít mentioned for some time that we have a wonderful Genealogy file of Pioneers and Late Pioneers of Wheat Ridge. We also have a Business file of some of our oldest Businesses.   All of these files are volunteer collections. If you want us to save something about your family or business we will be happy to do it.  Often our children are not interested in what happened way back then and donít want to be bothered with that stuff. We are finding out that grand kids and greats are interested.  So if you are interested in having a place to store your stuff we are available. We do not have room for boxes of stuff so call us first so we can accommodate your needs. We also have a lot of information on Jefferson County and some very interesting maps some are rare.



Be sure and stop by the Baugh House on Aug. 8th for our annual Heritage Days Event. We will be having a quilt show in the house. Some of our quilts are quite old and very interesting.  We only take them out once a year so this is the day to see them.  We will also have a tours of the house and the Cabin we are very proud to say that this House is on the National Register of Historic Places along with the Soddy. We will be serving lunch for a donation. 

Be sure and stop by The Historic Park, just North of the Baugh House, and check out the Old Soddy Museum and Log cabin.  All of these buildings are open Tues Ė Fri from 10am -3pm tours of more than , en please call Jane at 303-467-0023.

The Society will have a booth at the Carnation Festival. We will be there Fri and Sat. Next to the Fire Departments booth stop by visit and find out about the History of Wheat Ridge.

The Wheat Ridge Quilting Circle meets the 4tth Weds of every month at the Brick museum in the Historic Park from 10:00 am -2:30pm. Please come and join this lively group for tips on quilting and an enjoyable day.
