The Dougherty Museum is the culmination of a lifelong personal hobby of Ray G. Dougherty, a longtime Boulder County farmer. The Dougherty family opened the museum’s doors in 1977, and they have continued to run the museum since Mr. Dougherty’s death in 1988.
- Among the collection is a 1902 Mobile Steamer owned by Boulder pioneer Andrew J. Macky – one of the first cars in Boulder County, if not the first.
- There are several Stanley Steamers, including a 1915 Stanley Steamer 12 Passenger Mountain Wagon. The Stanley Steamers met people at Longmont and Loveland’s train depots to take their guests up to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.
- There are several phonographs invented by Thomas Alva Edison in 1877.
- If antique automobiles and musical instruments are not enough, the collection has late 19th century and early 20th century farm equipment, including an 1890 grain harvesters, a 1911 manure spreader, a silage cutter, drilling rig, several grain binders and much more!
