1906, Thomas MacLaren. 1125 Pine St. (NR)

As the “Athens of the Rockies,” Boulder relished the Greek Revival style of its first grand library. The restored oak ceiling beams and wain-scot, marble fireplace, and pine floors shine once again. After the opening of the new main library ( BL01), this became the local history branch, with a collection that includes a wealth of material on Boulder buildings.
