Memories of Boulder County through the Art and Words of Robert Dacey

Robert Dacey has made it his mission to capture and preserve the historical settings of Boulder County. He sees old barns or mining structures as monuments to the area's past. This book presents a selection of Dacey's paintings along with a narrative about each one.

"At one time," Dacey says, "these buildings were part of someone's home or workplace. People lived in them and watched the sunset from their porch. At the migrant farms the ghosts of people who labored in the fields can be heard. You can hear the sound of children laughing."

Visitors, newcomers, and long-time residents will gain an appreciation for Boulder County's fading past through this book.

"Robert Dacey’s paintings and sketches are a visual archive of some of the dwellings and outbuildings that populated the Boulder County landscape—and beyond—in earlier times. They are a reminder of a time when farming, ranching and mining were the predominant economic forces in the region. Robert’s art recognizes the importance of our history and of those who built and maintained these structures."
—Ron Stewart, Boulder County Commissioner, 1985-2005
