History Story Map

Friends of the Lower Blue River is committed to preserving the rich history of the Blue River Valley. Through grant support from the Summit Foundation, we have created this interactive tool that documents and takes you to key points of interest in the Valley. You will see photographs and read about those who came before us. Those who settled this pristine area of Summit and Grand Counties in the 1800’s and the relevance those sites have today. FOLBR invites you to take this journey on our website and discover the treasure, that truly is the Lower Blue River Valley.

This open space area was designated to remain a conservation easement in perpetuity. Friends of the Lower Blue River has taken a stand against this effort by the Summit BOCC. It is our position this would set a very dangerous precedent, that could affect conservation easements along the Lower Blue River Valley. Here is the letter from the FOLBR Board sent to the Commissioners on the BOCC.
