About Us

Historic Eastside Neighborhood Assoc.

The Historic Eastside Neighborhood is bounded by 9th Avenue on the North, 3rd Avenue on the South and Kimbark and Martin Streets on the West and East, respectively. A section of our neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, having many outstanding homes built in the late 1800's and early 1900's. This is Longmont's first neighborhood, settled originally as the "Chicago-Colorado Colony" in 1871.

When/Where HENA Meets & Our Newsletter

The Historic Eastside Neighborhood Association meetswhen issues arise and for an annual meeting in September at the end-of-summer picnic in Collyer Park.  Everyone is invited.

We learn about our neighbors and the histories of our houses. It also alerts us to problems that may require urgent action.

Our free newsletters are published several times a year. Volunteer block representatives distribute them to residences throughout the neighborhood. If you are not receiving a newsletter or if you can help with the distribution, please call Bob Carlson at 303-774-1997.
