Niwot, CO

Niwot is a charming little historic town not far from Boulder Colorado. We visited on a whim and were delighted to discover an art-park and lots of preserved history.

The town is named after Arapaho Chief Niwot, depicted here in in the “art park”

Just off the main drag, Niwot has a small part which is also an art installation and gallery (many items are for sale).

The man drag, about a block away from the art-park, is entirely preserved in it’s historic splendour. Lots of pretty places, restaurants, and businesses which have taken over the historic buildings.

There actually use to be a piano manufacturer in this little town. This is all that is left of them.

In the playground we came across a squirrel on an “Impossible Mission”. Janine helped out the little guy – which made for a very cute short video:
