Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Dog of the Month

Downtown Dog of the Month
Meet Sam Midgely. Sam is a 3 year old Golden that loves to play ball. He also loves to spin, and really gets going when he is showing off. Sam is very happy that Louie’s Pet Supply moved in across from his Mom’s office at Staufer Team Real Estate because he loves all the food and treats just a twirl away.

Historic Moments
This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are featuring:

The Grain Elevator

The Grain Elevator
540 County Road

Built in circa 1905 – 1906, the Elevator is considered to be the most historically and visually significant structure associated with the agricultural history of the community. One of the area’s last remaining wooden grain elevators, it is currently being stabilized and redeveloped. Local farmers brought their grain here, where it would be processed and transported by rail to a flour mill in Denver.
