The Cross Ridge community was established on the Ewing Homestead land. The Ewing farm house is all that remains of a historic Boulder County homestead settled over 125 years ago at what was then called “Eight-Mile Corner,” now 95th and Arapahoe streets in Lafayette.

The Lafayette-based Book Arts League has partnered with the City of Lafayette to preserve the historic Ewing Farm structures and provide for their maintenance while using the Farm as headquarters and studio. The League worked with the Lafayette City Manager and Historic Preservation Board to secure Colorado State

Historical Society grants for the rehabilitation of the Farm. The League holds regular open houses when the old Ewing farm house is open to the public. See below for a 2010 Daily Camera article.
