In the 1997, a passionate group of Northglenn citizens banded together to save the oldest brick farmhouse in the area from certain demolition, contributing countless hours to the loving restoration of both the interior and exterior of the Stonehocker Farmhouse in years following. This group became the Historic Preservation Commission, an advisory arm to the City of Northglenn. The Historic Preservation Foundation was subsequently created in 1999, and fundraises to support the work of the Commission. Both groups work together closely and are extremely active in identifying local historic assets in the City of Northlenn. The Stonehocker Farmhouse and surrounding property has continued to be the most active project, and the group opens the home to tours and local events, including Olde Fashioned Northglenn Christmas each year.
