Colorado’s Most Endangered Places Program 2020 Published Annually • Issue No. 23 This project was paid for in part by a History Colorado State Historical Fund grant. Program Sponsors:

Colorado Preservation, Inc.’s mission is to promote historic preservation throughout Colorado through advocacy, education, outreach, and preservation services.

BUILDING A FUTURE WITH HISTORIC PLACES For more information visit www.coloradopreservation.org or call 303.893.4260

A FOCUS ON OF COLORADO'S THE FUTURE ENDANGERED PLACES Historic preservation by definition focuses on preserving

Adaptive re-use plays an important role in the

that future generations benefit from the effort to save

uses in historic buildings that help to maintain their

the past, but this is done with an eye toward ensuring our most important historic and cultural resources. CPI strongly believes in building a future with historic

places, and the 23 years of program implementation

at sites listed on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places

has proven time and time again that this approach enriches the quality of our communities today. As we

look to the future, it is up to us to perpetuate this legacy of preservation work through advocacy, education,

resource development, and appropriate approaches and treatments for endangered sites.

This year’s new sites added to Colorado’s Most Endangered

preservation process by enabling new or complementary economic vitality. The Isis Theatre in Victor, Colorado, provides a perfect example of how complementary uses relating to the building’s long theatre, movie house, and entertainment history can potentially be

capitalized on in a way that supports future Main Street

Program community goals. Similarly, the East Portal

Camp Cabins, developed as a “factory system” town for workers building the Moffat Tunnel, can potentially support new uses that complement the popular James Peak Trailhead and Wilderness area while supporting Gilpin County’s heritage tourism goals.

Places list also illustrate that preservation involves more

Rapid advances in new technology, industrial practices,

we think strategically and creatively about adaptive re-use

than just the tangible built environment. In fact, the stories

that built them, offer important lessons about the past that can help inform the future. Sometimes these lessons are painful, as in the case of the troubling Indian Boarding School era in American history. In nominating the Southern

Ute Indian Boarding School campus, the Southern Ute Tribe seeks to both tell their story of the impact of this

misguided effort at forced assimilation, while preserving some of the key buildings on the campus for other uses that can be beneficial in the future.

The Antelope Springs Methodist Episcopal Church located north of Snyder, Colorado, on the Eastern Plains, also

endured a painful chapter in its history when the modest

but beautiful little church was badly burned in an arson fire last summer. This was a major setback in efforts to preserve the building, but at the same time provides an opportunity

retail trends, and workplace organization necessitate that possibilities for the buildings, structures and landscapes

that define our communities. Not all old buildings can

become museums, nor should they. Instead, efforts to find new uses that also generate income for preservation

must anticipate both market demand and changing cultural preferences in order to succeed for the long term. Preservation, by definition, is more of a long term, future-

oriented endeavor than many other forms of investment and development. So please bring your ideas, resources and energy to the task of

helping CPI save Colorado’s endangered places by working to preserve the past with a Focus on the Future!

for the dispersed rural community around the site to rally

to restore the building, which illustrates the important role religion played in the development of Plains communities.

ANTELOPE SPRINGS CHURCH The lovely Antelope Springs Methodist Episcopal Church, located on the plains of Eastern Colorado, may have averted disaster thanks to the quick reaction of passers-by who noticed suspicious behavior and the fact that the building was on fire at 3 am on a Sunday morning last summer. This led to the quick apprehension of suspects on charges of arson and an amazing response from fire fighters who managed to save the structure before it was lost. While the interior damage was significant and the ceiling beams and portions of the roof suffered damage, the structure itself remains intact and can definitely be restored, which is exactly what a small but determined group of area residents intend to do. The Antelope Springs church was built through community effort by local farmers and ranchers in 1915 and is the only remaining building from the Antelope Springs community. A two-story addition with access to a full basement was built


MORGAN COUNTY in 1932. The church was used both for religious purposes and community meetings and holds important memories for people in the area. Many weddings, community potluck dinners, baby showers, family reunions, harvest festivals and club meetings have been held at the church, which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.


The church is now owned by the local Wolever family, who also dealt with personal tragedy prior to the fire when Kim Wolever’s husband Craig lost his life in an accident last year. At the time, Kim and her mother Sharon Wolever were in the process of forming a non-profit corporation for the purpose of restoring the church. The goals of the renewed effort will be to return the church to its role as a community center for the area and to share its historical value with area schools and organizations. CPI will build on the outpouring of community support that followed the arson fire to help the owners find additional partners, technical support, and funding for rehabilitation of the modest but beautiful church.


EAST PORTAL CAMP CABINS GILPIN COUNTY The five surviving East Portal Camp “THE FIVE REMAINING Cabins, built at the east WORK CABINS ARE AN entrance to the Moffat Tunnel in Gilpin County, IMPORTANT PIECE OF remain the last remnants THE STORY IN HOW of a “factory system” THE MOFFAT TUNNEL town for workers who bored through the CAME TO BE, AND THEIR mountain to accomplish PRESERVATION IS one of the most IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE important engineering THAT THE WHOLE STORY accomplishments in U.S. history. Although IS TOLD.” not the first to conceive David Forsyth, Ph.D of a tunnel under the Executive Director & Curator Continental Divide, Gilpin Historical Society David H. Moffat’s determination to unite Denver with the West Coast by railroad was the guiding impulse that eventually led to the construction of the Moffat Tunnel. Once completed, the Moffat Tunnel eliminated 150 miles off of the transcontinental routes, allowing trains to pass through the divide with ease. The construction camps at the East Portal (Gilpin County side) were built in 1922-23 prior to the commencement of work on the tunnel itself. During the late 1920s, most largescale engineering projects were plagued with high labor turnover, low morale, dangerous working conditions, and a general unwillingness to stay. Contractors Hitchcock and Tinkler determined that the best way to achieve better results and a good work ethic was through a well-designed, built environment that would include comfortable accommodations, efficient workspaces, social activities, and a readily available food supply. Hitchcock and Tinkler hired Colorado engineer Clifford A. Betts, who organized the company town on either


side of an east-to-west bearing main street projecting from the tunnel outlet. Along the main street, the utilitarian shops were located closest to the tunnel; the bunkhouses and recreation facilities were located just west of the shops; and the entire entity was enclosed with a fence. East of the bunkhouse and shop complex was the “Cottage Village,” which was originally a complex of eleven single-family cottages arranged north of a street. The cottages employed features evocative of fashionable early twentieth century residences, with wide eaves, low gable roofs, and exposed rafters. The five surviving East Portal Camp Cabins provide the only remaining built connection with the individuals that constructed the tunnel, including 28 workers who died in the process. The cabins are located at the base of the James Peak Trail, that leads into the James Peak Wilderness area, which provides easy access and the opportunity to introduce this important history to thousands of trail users. The buildings sit on U.S Forest Service land but are owned by Union Pacific’s Real Estate Department, which is considering donating them to Gilpin County, who would work with CPI and local partners, including possible historical, wilderness and trail organizations, to save and interpret them. Rehabilitation of the cabins could provide adaptive re-use options that would benefit several potential partners while saving this important remnant of one of the most important achievements in American engineering history.


ISIS THEATRE Victor, Colorado, has a rich architectural heritage and a colorful and bawdy past, to put it mildly. The Isis Theatre, located in the heart of the small downtown and its former Red Light district, epitomizes this wildly entertaining past as it serves as a panorama of the history of live theatre, motion pictures, and entertainment from the earliest era of the town up until the present. The original theatre was built in 1899 but burned down along with most of town that year. It was rebuilt in 1904 and is the only theatre in town and is an integral part of the Victor Downtown National Register Historic District. The theatre’s stage has been used for vaudeville shows, plays and movies and contains a vast display of memorabilia, including vintage costumes, playbills, posters, theatre curtains, and its original piano. The art nouveau light fixtures in the auditorium are believed to be original to the post-fire building of 1904. There are about 300 wooden, upholstered seats left in various condition, with elaborate carvings on the end-of-row seats. Upstairs there are two vintage arc-light projectors believed to be in working condition that are thought to have some direct link to


TELLER COUNTY Thomas Edison’s designs for DC voltage, which subsequently required converters in the basement after rival Nikola Tesla implemented Victor’s groundbreaking AC power grid. The theatre’s owners, teacher-historian Cynthia Hermanns and artist-musician Daniel Whitmore, are local residents who love the community and set out to find a vacant building to buy that could make a significant positive impact on the town. The city's Mayor and Council and area business owners all support the ongoing care and future rehabilitation of the Isis Theatre. As a candidate community in the Colorado Main Street Program, Victor hopes that rehabilitation and re-use of the long-closed theatre can serve as a catalyst for broader downtown and community revitalization. CPI supports these goals and will provide technical expertise and help with finding additional partners and resources for the preservation effort.



SOUTHERN UTE BOARDING SCHOOL CAMPUS The Southern Ute Boarding School Campus (SUBSC) reflects a difficult and multi-faceted story of the Indian Boarding School Era within Colorado and American history. The federal government’s efforts to control, contain, and civilize the oldest, longest continuous inhabitants of Colorado began pre-statehood, after the Mexican-American War, with the signing of the Treaty of Abiquiu in 1849. Fighting against all odds of cultural-genocide via forced assimilation, the SUBSC also represents the resilience of Southern Ute foremothers and forefathers, descendant from the Mouache, Capota, and Weeminuche Bands of Ute, others from various Indigenous Nations—i.e. Jicarilla Apache and Navajo. The Treaty of 1868 designated the western third of Colorado as the first Ute Reservation and illustrates the earliest mention of the United States’ ruthless agenda to eradicate Ute heritage through a military based model of American education. The military based model of Americanization pioneered by Capt. Richard Pratt, at Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, was the method the United States Government intended to implement for the Southern Ute. Article 8 of the Treaty of 1868 expresses the United States government’s intent “…to insure the civilization of the bands entering into this treaty” and train the Southern Utes to become laborers and agriculturalists.


The initial building of the Southern Ute Boarding School (SUBS) was constructed in 1901, after several unsuccessful education programs at Ute agencies between 1868 and 1877. In 1920, the SUBS closed and between then and 1956 the school underwent several developments over time that reflected changing educational, tribal, and governmental and community uses. At various times in its 79-year history, the campus housed and or educated Ute and other Indigenous students. Over the years, the SUBSC included

SOUTHERN UTE RESERVATION a hospital, girl’s dormitory, dining hall, classroom buildings, a vocational school, dairy barn, and silo before closure in 1981. Today, the Main School House, Dining Hall, Girl’s Dormitory, Nurses Quarters, and the Park with the Center Flag Pole are all that remain from this controversial era, which disrupted and destroyed cultural teachings, lifeways, and language that would have otherwise been passed down from Tribal Elders to indigenous youth. The murals in the Main School House and Dining Hall reflect one of the transitionary periods of use. Initially, the Bureau of Indian Affairs would have punished indigenous youth for speaking their language or practicing their culture. However, the Main School House and Dining Hall contain the only two murals on the reservation by Sam Ray, a student of the Ute Vocational School, which he painted during the Great Depression and were funded through the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Structures from this era are extremely scarce in Colorado and the SUBS was the first institution to be historically established on a reservation within Colorado. A “Save” for this historic district includes the documentation of the history of these institutions and Indigenous people’s experiences during this era of Colorado and American history and a plan for preservation and rehabilitation of key buildings on the second to last salvageable historic district in Colorado from the Indian Boarding School era. This project provides CPI with the opportunity to work with one of the two resident Tribal Governments in Colorado on an on-reservation project. This project will bring public awareness to this underrepresented era in Colorado history, while honoring the hardships faced by the Southern Utes and other Indigenous Ancestors who attended the SUBS and the resiliency they exerted to preserve what they could of their heritage, lifeways, and languages.


DENVER AND RIO GRANDE ANTONITO DEPOT The long vacant Denver & Rio Grande Antonito Depot was empty for 50 years at the time of its listing on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places in 2007 but is now officially saved after two phases of rehabilitation, thanks in part to grants from History Colorado’s State Historical Fund. New tenants, Conejos Clean Water, will complete the picture when they fully move in in early 2020. The remarkable railroad station, listed in the National Register of Historic Places and constructed out of quarried ashlar volcanic stone in 1890, served the town of Antonito and the surrounding communities until 1951. The significance of the depot is evident in the fact that all of Antonito’s original buildings were constructed to face the station. The Town of Antonito persevered over more than a decade to form a partnership with Conejos County Commissioners, Los Camino Antiguos Scenic & Historic Byway, the Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad, and others to help with preservation plans, grant writing, and fundraising. This paid off in 2016, when CPI, the Town of Antonito and the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area partnered to obtain a $128,694 State Historical Fund grant for restoration of the depot. This initial exterior phase began in late summer 2016 to repair


SAVED windows, doors, and woodwork, replace the roof, and to rebuild the chimneys. Shuber-Darden Architects and Empire Carpentry were the contractors on the project, with CPI managing the grant. In October 2017, CPI was the recipient of another State Historical Fund grant of $74,806, matched with $25,001 in funding from the Town of Antonito, to continue exterior rehabilitation. This phase included stucco repairs, masonry repointing, custom storm windows and exterior lighting, including retrofitting with LED lighting of the historic gooseneck light fixtures. The rehabilitated depot will be a centerpiece of beautification efforts meant to revitalize the town’s downtown district. The depot is several hundred yards north of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad complex just south of the town. It is also a block east of Antonito’s town hall, putting it in the middle of two segments of proposed downtown revitalization efforts.




EL CORAZON DE TRINIDAD DISTINCTIVE COMMERCIAL DISTRICT The architecturally rich El Corazon de Trinidad Distinctive Commercial District, made up of much of the central and southern downtown area of Trinidad, Colorado, has experienced a remarkable level of revitalization and renewed vitality over the past 5-7 years and is now considered a save for CPI’s Endangered Places list. The district was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and its initial period of development and prosperity from 18801920 left the city with a legacy of intact historic buildings, within their historic context, unparalleled in Colorado. The district reflects the extraordinary body of work created by legendary architects like Frank Edbrooke and Isaac Hamilton Rapp, as well as the efforts of ethnically diverse, pioneering retail entrepreneurs and merchants, including the community’s small but influential Jewish community. The decision to list the El Corazon de Trinidad Distinctive Commercial District on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places list in 2000 reflected the declining fortunes of many of the state’s downtowns at the time, including Downtown Greeley, which was also listed that same year and declared a save in 2012. Since that time, the City of Trinidad, the Trinidad-Las Animas Economic Development Council, the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Colorado Creative Industries and other groups have worked very hard to revitalize the district and make it the lively and entertaining heart of the community it has become.


SAVED An early catalyst for revitalization occurred with the rehabilitation of the Toltec Hotel, listed individually on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places in 1998 and declared saved in 2006. Trinidad’s participation in the Colorado Main Street Program helped organizing efforts aimed at broader revitalization, while investors including Dana Crawford and Urban Neighborhoods and longtime local stalwart Jay Cimino and the Downtown Trinidad Development Group, took on key projects like the Fox Theater rehabilitation and the Trinidad Champions Building, among others. Cultural entities like the Southern Colorado Repertory Theatre, A.R. Mitchell Museum of Western Art and the nearby History Colorado Bloom Mansion and Baca House complex have continued to anchor revitalization efforts. More recently, the Corazon de Trinidad Creative District, designated in 2017, has been a catalyst for building on the arts and creative industries and popular events like Artocade and the Trinidaddio Blues Fest to enliven the downtown area. Several long term and newly opened restaurants now cater to residents and visitors alike, and the advent of retail marijuana has bolstered local tax revenues to help with infrastructure projects and other improvements. While much work remains to solidify the revitalization effort, it is clear that a new day has dawned in Trinidad and its showpiece El Corazon de Trinidad Distinctive Commercial District can now be considered saved.
