A Piece of Boulder History: 1003 9th Street, Boulder CO

Posted by Gabrielle Fuqua on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 at 9:29pm.

The stately Craftsman style home of pressed red clay brick near Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado has caught the eye of many visitors to the area. A historic gem, it was built at the turn of the 20th century by the well-known Boulder brick mason, Benjamin Franklin Gregg, who later built the famous "castle house" also located on 9th. This hand chiseled brick home truly represents the work of a master and has elements reminiscent of the Queen Anne Style with many small craftsman details in the woodwork. It's just the type of home that as you drive by, it leaves you dying to see inside.

Once home to Evan Austin, son of Eugene Austin, Boulder's former mayor and co-founder of Boulder Pressed Brick Company, this home has housed families large and small who have literally left treasures behind in the historic walls. Another well-known resident of the home, Robert C. Lewis, PhD, was the first head of the University of Colorado's Department of Physiology and Biochemistry in 1917. 

The historic home will be coming on to the market soon and will surely be its own treasure to the lucky new owners.
