Your Historic Home: Preservation for Living

Though more humble than the city’s grand and iconic landmarks, these historic resources have an everyday importance in our communities and our quality of life. We hope to strengthen this importance by being a source of encouragement and a technical resource for those who live in and love their historic house. Through the program, we educate homeowners about restoring and preserving their home by providing technical assistance and offering opportunities to learn more about specific restoration subjects. 

Learn more about this program, view video workshops and get tips for caring for your historic property here.

Our outreach to owners of Historic Homes is funded in part by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Colorado State Historical Fund.
