Harbeck-Bergheim House

This phase of engagement has ended. This project is expected to be re-opened in spring 2019 to gather more input.

Harbeck-Bergheim House, a local historic landmark located at 1206 Euclid Ave.

The City of Boulder Parks and Recreation department owns the Harbeck-Bergheim House, a local historic landmark located at 1206 Euclid Ave. For many decades the house was leased by the newly re-branded Museum of Boulder, though the museum has recently moved to a new location. As the museum completes their move from the Harbeck-Bergheim House location, we would like to discuss the future possibilities for this valuable historic asset with the community.

Project Objectives:

  • Incorporate a long-term solution for the future use and ownership of the Harbeck-Bergheim House that maintains the historical and vibrant integrity of the landmarked property.
  • Develop the long-term strategy in consultation with key stakeholders and the Boulder community.
  • Determine the long-term sustainability of the most appropriate solution with support from the community, stakeholders, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and City Council.
  • Guide identification for the most successful long-term solution through continual alignment with the mission, goals and objectives of the Boulder Parks and Recreation department and Master Plan.
  • Inform the community, internal and external stakeholders, as appropriate, to build awareness around how feedback may be incorporated throughout the engagement process, measuring success and outcomes.

The Harbeck-Bergheim House has been a part of the Boulder community for a long time. We would love to hear your tales about the house. It has had many visitors, events and even childhood memories for some.

Thank you for sharing your story with the community. Your story will be available on the website for others to enjoy and may appear as anecdotal quote in the public engagement process.

  • Yoga and Meetings at Harbeck House

    by Julie Phillips, about 1 year ago

    I have been to  events at Harbeck House through the years, but my clearest memories are taking yoga classes there with Cheryl Abbott, who was my wonderful first yoga teacher. It was interesting when the classes got bigger as we were often in adjoining rooms working on our asana, trying to fit everyone and their yoga mats into rather small adjoining rooms. 

    Harbeck is a beautiful resource for the city, and I hope it gets the attention and love it deserves.
