There is a lot of history in the City of Greeley and you can learn more than you think by attending one of the free walking tours. Great for the whole family.

The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission will start the walking tours on Monday, July 13 in the Sherwood Neighborhood. The area dates back to the 60's as you'll see by the dated architecture.

Ashleigh Schwallier, City of Greeley Historic Preservation Intern, and Betsy Kellums, Greeley Historic Preservation Specialist, will lead the tour of one of Greeley’s historically significant post-World War II neighborhoods that marks a change in planning and architecture from pre-WWII development.

Come walk around the outside of one of Greeley’s round schools and share your stories of the school if you attended there!  If you can't make the walking tour this month, there will be two other chances to take in some of Greeley's history. (See schedule below)

  • July 13 - Sherwood Neighborhood. Starting location: Gloria Christi Lutheran Church, 13th Street & 31st Avenue, 7 p.m.
  • August 3 - Meeker’s Founding Principles for Greeley. Starting location: Meeker Home, 1324 9th Avenue, 6:30 p.m.
  • September 21 - Weld County Courthouse. Starting location: Courthouse at 901 9th Avenue, 5:30 p.m.

The walking tours are free, open to the public and a great history lesson as you'll get to hear and see the historical, cultural and architectural significance to Greeley.
