If one completes the journey to one's own heart, one will find oneself in the heart of everyone else.
Father Thomas Keating
Letter From Founder
As a young man attending the University of Colorado, I fell in love with Boulder and decided to make it my home. In 1978, I went on a quest to find the perfect building and grounds to house my future home and office. The historic Highland School, perched majestically on the high bank of the Boulder Creek, was boarded-up and abandoned, tragically left to decay and anxiously waiting for the demolition ball or its savior. Fortunately I was able to look past the caved-in roof, warped floors and broken windows to see a true diamond in the rough. The tall ceilings, ornate red brick exterior and carved sandstone detailing stood as a testament to its timeless beauty.
I purchased Highland and began the painstaking task of breathing life into it. Thirty-plus years later, surrounded by graceful, award winning gardens and peacefully flowing creeks, this historic landmark is the premier office building in Boulder. The Highland property includes four residential town homes sited on the bank of Boulder Creek, making it the city's first mixed-use development. City Club, situated in Highland's elegantly renovated basement, has become the social, educational and civic hub of our community.
The Highland School was here before my grandfather was born, and will be here after my grandchildren are gone. It has been an honor and a privilege to be the custodian of this well polished gem.
