On The Side

More Information


March 26 – May 22, 2011

Niwot on the Rails, created in collaboration with the Niwot Historical Society, explores the history of our neighbor community. Using historic pictures and original artifacts from early Niwot, you can learn how this small community was founded as a railroad town and endured fires, hard times, and even a daring bank robbery.

Did you know that you travel through Niwot’s original downtown every time you drive the Diagonal Highway? The route of the Diagonal went straight through the old downtown and Niwot School, and every building in its path was torn down.
