simple utility to create structures of lasting beauty. This new listing in seeks to build a stronger ethic for bridge

preservation in Colorado. Similarly, the Lafayette Head Home & Ute Indian Agency was the center of action in pre-

State Colorado and during early statehood, as it served as the nexus of Anglo, Hispano and Indigenous cultures and their often contentious and uneasy co-existence.

Lafayette Head seemed to be everywhere at once at that

time, from building and operating the trading post and Indian Agency at Conejos, to negotiating with the tribes

in Washington, D.C., and serving as Colorado’s first Lt.

HISTORIC BRIDGES OF COLORADO As a state with many distinguishing geophysical characteristics, including mountains and plains and rivers and streams, Colorado by necessity has many historic bridges that reflect its diverse regions and cultural heritage. But until recently, there has never been a strong bridge preservation ethic in the state. CPI, in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), has embarked on a partnership to rectify this area of historic preservation that has gone largely unnoticed by the general public. The nomination for Colorado’s Most Endangered Places identified forty-six (46) on-system high priority bridges representing different bridge types and locations across the state. Of these, CDOT is willing to commit to preserving in place as many as 20 priority bridges. These bridges still carry vehicular traffic on state highways, and still function in that capacity. The bridges under consideration for preservation range in age from 1888 to 1973 and span the full breadth of Colorado’s bridge development, which evolved from early timber structures and steel bridges to the use of more functional and standardized designs using pre-stressed concrete in the post-World War II era. Some are considered significant in the context of roadways they carry or the waterways they span, while

STATEWIDE others are significant in relationship to the City Beautiful era or the federal work relief programs that originated from the Great Depression. Most are considered significant in the areas of Transportation and Engineering.

“IN ORDER TO SAVE HISTORIC BRIDGES, WE MUST ENGAGE WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRIDGES, APPRECIATION FOR THE ENGINEERING OF THESE STRUCTURES, AND SUPPORT FOR THE HISTORY THESE STRUCTURES PLAYED IN THEIR COMMUNITY”

This partnership is a unique opportunity for CPI to partner with CDOT in building awareness and Rebecca Goodwin advocacy for a resource EPP Nomination Reviewer type that has a local and statewide presence, but also a national context for bridge preservation. Listing these bridges will assist CDOT in developing partnerships with local communities and other organizations for funding and support for bridge rehabilitation efforts. Finally, the listing of Historic Bridges of Colorado on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places will help to make connections between bridges and important events in Colorado’s history that can be conveyed by local communities in their heritage tourism efforts. This developing partnership will build on CPI’s commitment to building a future with historic places, by bridging the gap between demolition and preservation of Colorado’s historic bridges to ensure that future generations can enjoy them, too.

LAFAYETTE HEAD HOME AND UTE INDIAN AGENCY For a relatively brief, but formative period in Colorado, the Lafayette Head Home & Ute Indian Agency was the center of the universe for a diverse convergence of cultures and forces that changed the state’s history. The Lafayette Head Home & Ute Indian Agency was built by Lafayette Head in 1855 and played an important role in the settlement of Colorado. Lafayette Head was an early settler in the San Luis Valley after serving in the Mexican-American War and establishing himself first as a prominent businessman in Santa Fe. He and his family then founded one of the first permanent settlements in the Valley, naming it Guadalupe, but relocated it to higher ground and renamed it Conejos, where he built his compound in what is now the county seat of Conejos County. In 1859, Head was appointed as Special Agent to the Ute and Jicarilla Apache tribes, and served in this position for nine years, working especially with the Tabeguache Ute and Chief Ouray. Head used his home in Conejos as the agency headquarters. Head was also instrumental in treaty negotiations with the Ute tribes in Washington, D.C., that eventually led to the relinquishment of San Luis Valley lands to the United States and the establishment of the Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute reservations in far southwestern Colorado.

“THIS PROPERTY IS RICH WITH POTENTIAL TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE NARRATIVE OF COLORADO. NATIVE AMERICANS, MANY OF WHOM WERE ENSLAVED, THE HISPANO SETTLERS, THE FRENCH TRAPPERS, THE ANGLO TRADERS, THE MILITARY, THE MINERS . . . ALL CROSSED PATHS IN THIS LOCATION. COLORADO BEGAN HERE!” Loretta Mitson EPP Nomination Reviewer

CONEJOS COUNTY When the Colorado Territory was established in 1861, the Head Home and Conejos became part of it. The Head House itself is representative of Indo-Hispano, Native American, Territorial, and early Colorado architecture. The house originally had a flat, earthen roof with large vigas, or log beams spanning the rooms, and was constructed of adobe. The home was richly appointed with fine furnishings and saw a steady stream of visitors to it and the adjacent compound, which still includes another adobe building and remains of one of the first grist mills in Colorado. In 1872, Lafayette Head was elected to the Colorado State Legislature and was one of the 39 delegates to serve during the 1875 constitutional convention for Colorado statehood. He was also elected the first Colorado Lieutenant Governor under Governor John Routt. Architect Ron Rael, Professor of Architecture at the University of California-Berkeley, is leading the effort to preserve the building and disseminate the history of the site as a cultural resource to the local and regional community. Rael is a descendant of the families who accompanied Head to the Valley and has strong ties to his family’s ranch east of Conejos. The landscape and grounds around the Lafayette Head Home include a large abundance of archaeological evidence, from Picuris, San Felipe, and San Juan pottery to shell buttons and other artifacts reflective of various eras and cultures present at the site. A save for the Lafayette Head Home and Ute Indian Agency would include restoration and preservation of the site. The Salazar Rio Grande del Norte Center at Adams State University and Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area will partner with CPI, in consultation with Ute tribal representatives, on efforts to preserve and interpret the site.

WINTER PARK BALCONY HOUSE Winter Park’s original base area ski lodge, known as the Balcony House, vividly represents the early history and pioneering evolution of the City of Denver’s first Mountain Park, while also fostering groundbreaking developments in the Colorado ski industry as a whole. Since 1955, the Balcony House has played an essential role in skiing, snowboarding and summer activities, and in enhancing the overall experience of visitors, including “non-skiers and sightseers” as the marketing efforts proclaimed for years. Now the innovative, passive solar designed and uniquely sited Mid-century Modern Balcony House is threatened by neglect, under-appreciation for its uniqueness, and the relentless “big is better” drive for expansion that characterizes the contemporary ski industry. The Balcony House was designed by Stephen Bradley, the first director of the Winter Park Recreational Association (WPRA), who also invented the first ski packing and grading device in the United States. The two-story Balcony House, with its panoramic views from cascading balconies, is a prime example of Mid-century Modern architecture. To the best of our knowledge, it is the only remaining mid-century modern public ski lodge in Colorado. The Balcony House was one of America’s very first passive solar ski lodges and its style captured America’s fascination with futuristic designs and the coming space age. The Balcony House is iconic to Colorado's early ski industry from the 1930s to the 1960s and has been Winter Park’s meeting place, Ski Train station, ticketing hub, coffee house, lunch spot, and ski competition

GRAND COUNTY epicenter for over 65 years. The location of the Balcony House, at the base of the ski area, is perhaps its greatest feature and, at the same time, its greatest vulnerability. The adopted 2009 Master Plan for the base area of the ski resort calls for its demolition and replacement with 5-6 stories of condominiums above one level of resort operations. Advocates for preservation think a better way can be found to accommodate future growth without sacrificing the Balcony House. Reimagining Our Balcony House, a thoughtful alternative plan championed by architect James G. Johnson, AIA, and other preservation advocates, envisions a synergistic effort to save and enliven the historically significant portions of the Balcony House, while meeting the programmatic requirements of the Master Plan, which calls for increased ski operations, lodging and parking. Listing the Winter Park Balcony House on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places would raise awareness of its historical importance within the Denver Mountain Park System and ski industry as a whole, build on its historic, unique marketing and thematic appeal, and enhance the building for future generations. Listing on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places is intended to be a catalyst for further discussions with the WPRA and Alterra Mountain Company, developers of the ski resort, about how we can work together to preserve Winter Park Ski Area’s most authentic building.

“WINTER PARK HAS CAREFULLY DIFFERENTIATED ITSELF THROUGH ITS LONG HISTORY OF AUTHENTICITY UNLIKE OTHER, MUCH YOUNGER, COLORADO RESORTS THAT WOULD HAVE GUESTS BELIEVE THAT COLORADO SKIING STARTED AFTER WWII WITH ROOTS IN BAVARIA. NOT WINTER PARK. OUR IDENTITY IS GENUINE.” James G. Johnson AIA


GOLD MEDAL ORCHARD MONTEZUMA COUNTY The historic Gold Medal Orchard, located in McElmo Canyon, represents one of hundreds of remnant historic orchards located in Montezuma County and Colorado. First planted in 1890 by James Giles, the orchard soon earned its name by winning a gold medal for the quality of its apples and peaches at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Time passed, the trees grew into their grandeur, and then slowly faded into the landscape. Over 100 years later, only a few historic trees remain, hardy remnants of the orchard’s former glory. Heritage fruit varieties were lost, and the story of the Gold Medal Orchard and its prize-winning fruits was nearly forgotten. Today, the story of the Gold Medal Orchard is remembered by the Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project (MORP) through its work to preserve Colorado’s fruit-growing heritage. In 2015, the orchard was listed as one of Colorado’s Most Endangered Places by Colorado Preservation, Inc. (CPI). In 2019, the project was awarded the EPP Progress Award by CPI at the Dana Crawford & State Honor Awards, and with the leadership of Jude and Addie Schuenemeyer and the Kenyon family, is now saved.

SAVED historically grown there. This required searches not just from repositories and nurseries for living plant material, scion, but actually finding many of these rare and lost varieties in Colorado’s historic orchards. Specialty Crop Block Grants from the USDA and Colorado Department of Agriculture helped to fund the propagation work in the MORP nursery and the DNA testing of historic apple trees. This analysis confirmed the many rare cultivars growing in historic orchards and provided documentation to the historic context for the site. A History Colorado, State Historical Fund grant provided funds for interpretive signs at the Gold Medal Orchard, development of classes on Colorado’s orchard history, and a written historic context of orchards in Colorado. The restoration work to replant 400 trees to the site was completed by MORP volunteers and AmeriCorps NCCC service crews. We are grateful to CPI for recognition in 2015 of the Gold Medal Orchard as the first cultural landscape on the Endangered Places list. We are especially thankful for the relationship that MORP has cultivated with Philip and Vivienne Kenyon, who remain the great Philip and Vivian Kenyon inspiration through their ability to value the past but look toward the future.

To save the Gold Medal Orchard, MORP first had to find and save the many rare cultivars that were

GOODNIGHT BARN PUEBLO COUNTY In 2002, the historic Goodnight Barn, located along the Arkansas River west of Pueblo, was placed on Colorado’s Most Endangered Places as it faced imminent threats to its survival. The City of Pueblo purchased the deteriorating building to avoid an acquisition offer from Texas Tech University who wanted to move it to where Charles Goodnight got his start in the cattle business. Since then, Goodnight Barn Preservation, Inc. and the City of Pueblo worked for over six years to restore the historic 1870 stone barn. Today the Goodnight Barn has been moved from endangered to saved thanks to the State Historical Fund, the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, the El Pomar, Gates, and Gersick Foundations, and local businesses and donors. The Goodnight Barn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Charles Goodnight built his barn of locally mined Codell sandstone and with lumber hauled from Wetmore, 25 miles west. This was quite a feat given that his cowhands did most of the work. The majority of stone and timber is original, and the barn is one of the most architecturally significant agricultural buildings in Colorado. The barn was once part of Goodnight’s Rock Canyon Ranch, established in 1868 as one of the oldest and largest cattle

10

SAVED ranches in Colorado. The ranch was the northern headquarters for the GoodnightLoving Cattle Trail, which helped pioneer the cattle ranching industry in Colorado. Work began on the barn in August 2019 with HW Houston Construction, Inc. as the general contractor and Block by Block LLC doing all the restoration work. The west wall was scoped to be taken down and rebuilt to correct a lean of nearly 10 inches, but Bill Granda, the contractor proposed to pull the walls together with cables at a savings of $100,000. The savings allowed the project to re-align the south wall and completely repoint the building inside and out. Other work included concrete injections to stabilize the foundation, steel beams to stabilize the walls, a new concrete floor, a new wood shingle roof, interior and exterior lighting and electrical outlets, and exterior water and site improvements, including fencing and a parking lot. Today, Goodnight Barn Preservation, Inc. and the City of Pueblo look forward to offering a true Western Heritage experience when the barn is ready for visitors and events.
