Gold Hill featured in documentary
The Gold Hill Inn and the Bluebird Lodge have long been the hub of the small mining town’s social and commercial community. The memories of the residents make up the history of the people who founded the town, who attended its school and some of whom still live in the landmark cabins.
Angie Burnham, a long time Boulder resident, CU graduate and small business owner recognized the role that the Inn and the Lodge played in Gold Hill and decided to interview the people with the stories about the buildings.
Her interviews resulted in film that documents the social and architectural history of these two of Boulder’s most beloved building. Burnham then went on to talk to the people who were evacuated during the Fourmile Canyon Fire.
These fins Packed and Heart of Gold Hill include interviews with Washboard Chaz, Tim and Mollie O’Brien, Halden Wofford, Ophelia Swing Band and many town locals.
The films will be part of the Boulder Public Library’s Cinema Program Showcase Series presented on Monday, May 20th at 6:30 p.m. in the Canyon Theater in the library. There will be live music by Danny Shafer. The event is free, funded in part by a grant from the Boulder Arts Commission, an Agency of the Boulder City Council.
