About this site

This site explores and explains East Boulder County history from 1870 through about 1930. It is edited and maintained by Doug Conarroe, a fourth-generation Coloradan who grew up in Louisville, Colorado. His parents, Percy and Carolyn Conarroe, owned and operated the Louisville Times, Lafayette News and Erie Review from 1965 to 1997. Doug has a journalism degree and an MBA from the University of Colorado and published the North Forty News from 2011 to 2017. He and his wife, Dana Coffield, have lived in Lafayette since 1995.

This site is in no way meant to minimize the important contributions made by local historians Jim and Beth Hutchison, Chuck and Lois Waneka, Bill Kellett, Andy Patten, and my mother, Carolyn Conarroe. This author and this community are deeply indebted to these fine people and the work they did to preserve Lafayette and Louisville history.
