Board and Staff Colorado Preservation, Inc. Annual Report 2012

On the Cover: Hangar 61

Dear Friends and Supporters, For Colorado Preservation, Inc. (CPI), 2012 marked a productive and successful year of re-building and re-structuring, thanks to the vision, commitment, and considerable efforts of our statewide Board and Staff. We worked together as a team to face unique challenges with dedication and imagination. At the end of 2011, it became painfully evident that CPI was over-extended, and had taken on too many worthy projects without developing the resources to support them. The lingering effects of the 2008 economic crisis and real estate downturn severely affected our organization. We were at a turning point: restructure or go under. After months of research and deliberation, the Board, working closely with Staff, made the decision to continue, for the long haul, its committed efforts to “building a future with historic places!” We hope you agree that it was the best choice for grassroots historic preservation efforts in Colorado, and for Colorado Preservation, Inc. A very special thank you and recognition goes to Bob Musgraves, who volunteered to serve as full time Executive Director pro bono for eight months during this challenging time. Without his knowledge, commitment, and extraordinary generosity, Colorado Preservation, Inc. could not have survived. What did we change? These are the highlights from 2012: •

We tightened our staff and budget to run leaner, stronger, and more efficiently.

We moved into the newly rehabilitated historic Emerson School.

We focused on our signature initiatives: the Annual Saving Places® Conference, the Most Endangered Places Program, the Dana Crawford and State Honor Awards Event, and affirmed our commitment to provide technical support to preservation projects across the state.

We completed the exterior restoration of the Mathews-Gotthelf Mansion.

We redefined our role in the Share in the Care initiative to restore the State Capitol Dome.

We changed the scope of the multi-year “Home on the Range” documentation and interpretation project in southeastern Colorado.

We agreed that two initiatives we had been incubating for several years, HistoriCorps and the Colorado Preserve America Youth Summits, were ready to be independent.

We mothballed our “On the Road” program and the print version of our magazine “The Preservationist.”

We launched our monthly e-newsletter.

It was a memorable year, indeed! Thanks to the generosity of supporters like YOU, Colorado Preservation, Inc. will continue to save our treasured historic resources, to empower citizen preservationists throughout the state, and to “build a future with historic places.” Sincerely,

Arianthé Stettner

Weekend Workshop 2012 This year’s Volunteer Preservation Weekend Workshop took place at the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Station, constructed c.1890, and more commonly known as the Antonito Depot. Volunteers from across the state helped to weatherize and remove debris from the volcanic stone building. A new (temporary) roof of ashpalt shingles was added to protect the building while funding for a rehabilitation project is secured.

Villareal Homestead

A Home on the Range Colorado Preservation, Inc. is engaged in a multi-year project to document and interpret the homesteading heritage of the Purgatoire River Region entitled, Home on the Range. Hundreds of homestead sites in the region have been recorded, most having been settled in the 1910s-20s and abandoned during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression. Through field work and research, Colorado Preservation has found a variety of resources, including buildings often constructed of local sandstone, adobe, or vertical wood posts, water/irrigation features, livestock pens and corrals, historic material culture, prehistoric rock art and artifacts, as well as schools, cemeteries, and community buildings.

Villareal Homestead

The project is projected to finish in 2014, with the completion of five National Register nominations, a Multiple Property Documentation Form, podcasts complete with oral histories from local residents, an interpretive brochure on homesteading in the region, three driving tours, and three roadside kiosks.

Como Depot The Como Depot is one of three surviving structures, also including a hotel and roundhouse, from a major Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad complex, in Como, Park County. In 2012, a State Historical Fund Grant was awarded to complete the exterior and interior restoration of the site. Strong partnerships have been built as a consequence and the property will most likely be named a “Save� in 2014. Como Depot

Handy Chapel Handy Chapel was built in 1892 on land deeded to the “black citizens of Grand Junction.� A dwindling congregation and lack of funds have made maintenance and improvements virtually impossible. The roof of the Chapel House has failed, leaving the Chapel with only a temporary tarp in place to prevent additional damage from the elements. Building conditions prevented the Chapel House from fulfilling their mission as a place of rest and recovery for the destitute. Colorado Preservation, Inc. was awarded a grant from the State Historical Fund to complete an interior and exterior rehabilitation of the building. The project is projected to be completed in 2013. Handy Chapel

Granada Relocation Center Fear of espionage led the United States government to exile thousands of Japanese-American citizens to internment camps during WW II. In 1942, the Granada Relocation Center (Amache), was built and closed two years later in 1944. The site was designated a National Historic Landmark in February 2006.

Amache Water Tank

2012 was a year of work for Amache, with work beginning on the project to reconstruct a water tower and a guard tower. CPI was also awarded a grant from the National Park Service Japanese-American Confinement Sites Program to relocate an original barrack building, found 80 miles south of Granada, back to the site for interpretation.

Mathews-Gotthelf Mansion The exterior restoration of the Mathews-Gotthelf Mansion was completed in 2012. The Mansion will soon be on the market, awaiting an owner eager to complete the interior rehabilitation, completing the rehabilitation project. Colorado Preservation, Inc. purchased the neglected architectural gem in Denver’s Curtis Park neighborhood at the height of the real estate market in 2007. The goal was to restore the building’s 1880 exterior, preparing the building for a preservation-minded buyer. White Construction, Slaterpaull Architects, and Tom Thorpe of Townscapes, LLC, were integral in the completion of the restoration project. The project would not have been possible without a construction loan from the Colorado Historical Foundation and multiple grants from the State Historical Fund.

Special Initiatives There is no more potent symbol of the past, present and future aspirations of the people of our State than our venerable Colorado State Capitol Building and its magnificent goldplated dome. In 1908, miners donated 200 ounces of 24-karat gold to gild the cast-iron, copper-clad dome. Regrettably, the dome of our Capitol had fallen into serious disrepair. The cast iron enclosure of the dome and drum had deteriorated over the past hundred years, and engineering experts have declared the deteriorated condition of the structural metal fasteners holding the enclosure together to be a significant hazard to the building and its occupants. In 2009, Colorado’s elected leaders passed legislation tasking CPI with the responsibility to lead Share in the Care Colorado, a public/private initiative to fund the majority of the work required to restore the dome. 2012 was a year of great progress for the project. The white, plastic scrim is now covering the entire drum, with only the gold dome peeking out above. The project is expected to be completed in 2014. Colorado State Capitol Building


Colorado Preservation, Inc. Annual Report 2012

HistoriCorps® had a busy and successful season in 2012, with eighteen projects in Colorado, Wyoming, California, New Mexico, Utah, South Dakota, and Texas. The program started in 2010 under Colorado Preservation, Inc., acting as the incubator for the program’s long-term sustainability. HistoriCorps works through partnerships to mobilize volunteers to save and sustain our nation’s special places while providing educational and outdoor experiences. Big steps were made in 2012, when Towny Anderson was hired as the organization’s first Executive Director. Anderson will lead HistoriCorps in spinning off into their own 501(c)3 organization in 2013. With a staff of three, HistoriCorps is using the 2012 winter to plan a busy 2013 project season.

The Colorado Preserve America Youth Summit began in 2007 with the goal of creating an opportunity for young people aged 13 to 18 to get out of the classroom and into the field to learn about history, archaeology, heritage tourism and preservation.

Rocky Mountain National Park Youth Summit

Washington DC Youth Summit Trip

The only program of its type in the country, the Colorado Youth Summits have received national attention for the accomplishments of the experiences offered to over 500 students and their teachers in its first five years. The Summits work to achieve four primary objectives: connecting youth and teachers to historic places; involving students in historic preservation activities; expanding tools to support teachers’ efforts in heritage and preservation education; and bolstering local preservation and heritage tourism efforts. There were three separate Youth Summits in 2012. The students kicked off the year at the 2012 Saving Places Conference, then headed to Washington D.C. shortly after for the second summit. The third and final summit of 2012 was at Rocky Mountain National Park, as the Park engaged the students in planning events for the Park’s Centennial in 2015.

Colorado Preservation, Inc. Annual Report 2012

Como Depot †

Negative Fund Balance from Years Prior:

As of 12/31/2012, Colorado Preservation, Inc. (“CPI”) reported a negative fund balance of $609,837. This negative fund balance is accumulated from years prior to 2012. In 2012, CPI reported a net positive addition to the fund balance of $88,898. The negative fund balance from prior years was primarily from investing in the preservation of a historic building shortly before the real estate market downturn, not responding to the economic downturn in a timely manner by reducing staff, rent and other fixed costs, and not cutting programs quickly enough in response to the economic downturn in mid-2007 through 2010. By the end of 2012, staff had been appropriately reduced to 4 full time employees, CPI moved to less expensive office space and several programs were discontinued. CPI does continue to hold the historic real estate but is currently in purely a maintenance position requiring minimal cash outflow and is in the process of completing the sale of the property to a third party. In addition to these changes, CPI restructured its accounting procedures to more accurately track its financial condition for more timely and accurate reporting. A strict debt reduction plan has also been implemented. The changes in staff, programming, expense reductions and greater focus on our core mission and values have put CPI is a much better position of reaching its goal and ensuring its overall long-term viability.
