Boulder is considering purchasing historic, 110-acre Poor Farm property for $5.2 million

The Boulder City Council soon will vote on whether to approve, for $5.2 million, the purchase of the historic, 110-acre Boulder County Poor Farm property on 63rd Street.

If approved, the land would be folded into the city’s 45,000-acre Open Space and Mountain Parks division, and likely would serve a mix of agricultural and public recreational purposes in the future.

Only seven times in Boulder history has the city spent more than $5.2 million on an open space buy.

The Poor Farm property, a slice of county land northeast of Boulder, is highly recognizable from 63rd Street due to the red Queen Anne Victorian home that sits near the road.
