Preservation for a Changing Colorado
Great preservation work is happening every day all across Colorado. This site illustrates how historic preservation is making significant contributions to our state and local economies, from higher tax revenue and jobs created to more household income and increased tourist spending. Preservation will continue playing an important role over the next 50 years, helping local communities adapt to trends that will bring significant changes to Colorado.
History Colorado, established in 1879, provides statewide leadership and support in preserving the places that make Colorado unique.
As the State Historic Preservation Office, the Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation assists with archaeological permitting, nominations to the National and State Registers, certification of county and municipal preservation programs, approval of federal and state preservation tax credits, and review of the effects of federal projects on historic resources. The office also maintains a database of archaeological and historical resources throughout Colorado. historycolorado.org/preservation-archaeology
