Our Heritage Day celebration at the Baugh House last month was a big success with about 70 people touring the Victorian house and seeing the Vintage Quilts on display. Most people enjoyed lunch with our grill master Michael and assistant Lynn helping them to fill their plates. We had two groups of musicians sharing their talents to the delight of our guests.

Since our event was the same weekend as the Carnation Festival a lot of people were unable to attend both so we have extended our Vintage Quilt display thru October  17th . There are quilts on display at both the Museum and the Baugh House.  Special thanks to Jane Harvey and Dave Curtis for all the hard work setting up the quilt displays… we appreciate their time and dedication to the Historical Society!

The September SECOND SATURDAY will be at the Baugh house on 9-9-2017 10am to 2pm

Along with the vintage Quilt display we will also have a PRODUCE EXCHANGE/SALE in the big tent! Bring your questions about the Wheat Ridge area to our historians, we love talking history while rocking in the chairs at the Baugh house.  

Mark your Calendar for our upcoming

We are greatly encouraged by the recent donations to the Historic Society and we encourage you to talk with your relatives about the past, record their stories and share them with us. Antique items, old Wheat Ridge area photographs, year books and other memorabilia can be preserved for the future by donating them to the Historic Society.   Still enjoying your antiques and pictures but not sure what should happen to them when you are no longer around to enjoy them, put the Wheat Ridge Historic Society in your estate plan. Future generations will appreciate the items you loved and they will be treasured here at the park.

 The Historic Park at 4610 Robb Street is open Tuesday thru Friday 10 am to 3 pm with our hostess and tour guide Jane Harvey available to receive your donations and give tours of the park. Tours are only $2. (Cash or check please) But let us know ahead of time for large groups as we have some historians who can help with advanced notice.
