Photos: Chautauqua Dining Hall unveils a new look for the historic building

If you head to Boulder's Chautauqua Park tomorrow to celebrate National Trails Day, you'll find that the beautiful sights aren't all outdoors. The circa 1898 Chautauqua Dining Hall has been renovated, a major project that involved removing the carpets and restoring the original wooden floors, adding two fireplaces, and installing hand-crafted tables. The bar now has a railroad theme: The bar top came from an old box car; footrests at the bar were made from a railroad tie.
