The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission will continue the free 2020 History Brown Bag series with a chance to learn about famed Colorado architect William Bowman noon to 1 p.m., June 25, through a special Zoom meeting.

Historic Preservation Commissioner and retired construction professional Scott McLean will present on Bowman and his work in Greeley and throughout Colorado.

Bowman designed many significant Greeley buildings including the Weld County Courthouse, Gunter Hall at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC), the President’s House at UNC and the downtown Masonic Temple. Bowman also designed many magnificent buildings in the Denver area, Colorado and in surrounding states during the early 20th century.

The presentation will take place through Zoom and attendees must email to RSVP and receive the information needed to connect to the Zoom meeting to watch the Brown Bag presentation.  

History Brown Bag presentations generally take place on the fourth Thursday of each month January through October, noon to 1 p.m.

Due to COVID-19-related closures, tentatively, these remaining brown bag presentations will take place via Zoom.
