The original portion of the Moland house was built by John Moland in the mid-1700’s. In 1761, following John Moland’s death, the house was transferred to his daughters and youngest son. Mrs. Moland continued to live in the home following her husband’s death and was residing in the home at the time of the Neshaminy Encampment when George Washington and the troops stayed on the property.
During the “13 days of August 1777” (August 10-23) meetings were held in home in what is currently referred to as the “Council of War Room”. Attendees at those meetings would have included General Washington, Marquis de Lafayette, Count Pulaski, Alexander Hamilton, and other notable individuals. Documentation is not available to indicate whether Washington stayed in the house or outside the house in his tent with the troops.
Protecting residents living in the mountain rural foothills and mountain areas of west Boulder County Colorado as well as visitors for the last 30 years, Lefthand Fire Protection District is 52 square miles of rugged ridges, canyons and plains. Five subdivisions and several mountain neighborhoods make up this unique urban interface environment. There is also a significant part of our district that is used by many who recreate by a variety of modes.

We train our members in structure firefighting, wildland firefighting, medical response, and rescue. A major highway and two steep canyon roads are the access for several outlying communities to the Front Range Urban corridor through the district.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality service to our residents.

What We Do
The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
We address the most urgent conservation challenges at the largest scale. Today, more of our natural world is at risk than ever before. So our work is crucial to keep vital habitats and unique species from being lost forever.
But we can’t achieve the large-scale conservation victories necessary without the support and involvement of those who share our passion for preserving our last great places.
Mission of Humane Society of Boulder Valley
It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. We were founded more than a century ago in 1902, yet this mission holds true today as we counter animal neglect and cruelty and partner with other animal welfare organizations, sharing our mutual mission of saving more animals’ lives.
Our successful adoption programs allow us the ability to open our doors to thousands of animals facing euthanasia due to overcrowding or lack of resources in other shelters throughout our region. The transfer program also enables us to offer a greater variety of animals to our adoption clients. In addition to partnering with 55 regional animal welfare agencies, we are part of the national Rescue Waggin® program sponsored by PetSmart Charities.
