Out behind the Hoverhome at 1303 Hover Rd in Longmont is the preserved historic Hover Farm. The farm was originally built in 1893 by George Beckwith but was bought in 1902 by Charles Hover. Charles Hover was not only a community leader but was also one of driving forces in Longmont agriculture in the early to mid-1900’s.
The farm is a historic reminder of Longmont’s rich agricultural heritage.
The farm as well as the Hoverhome are owned and operated by the St. Vrain Historical Society and is used as an event center.
