Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Historic Preservation Building

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

1021 Main St.
The DiSalvo House

The DiSalvo House, located at 1021 Main Street, was built in 1908 by Pasqual Satriano as a rental property. In 1920, the house was purchased by Joseph and Carmela DiSalvo, both from Italy, who lived in the house with their children until 1959. The house includes elements of the Folk Victorian style such as the intricate porch fretwork and is one of the most distinctive on Main Street.

How Dark is your Sky?
Adults and Teens
July 24
6:30 – 8:30 pm
Library Meeting Room
951 Spruce Street

As the human population grows, more houses are built, more lights are turned on, and we see much less of the night sky. Astronomers lament this problem, but it also causes difficulties for wildlife and humans. Boulder County has participated in a dark sky study the last four years in collaboration with other Front Range agencies to track areas where darkness still reigns after sunset. Learn about this issue in more detail, see what Boulder County is doing to protect dark skies, view a new map that shows our darkest areas of the county, and find out what you can do to promote dark sky health.
