Architecture Lecture Thursday, June 7
A century ago, people came to today’s Rocky Mountain National Park area with dreams of vast cattle ranches, prosperous farms, productive mines, successful commercial ventures or summer homes amid the stunning scenery. They left behind a rich legacy – one of the West’s premier collections of historic lodges, guest ranches, cabins and retreats. “Rocky Mountain Rustic” is the name given to this unique architectural style.
Jim Lindberg, Director of Preservation Initiatives in the Mountains/Plains Office for the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Denver and author of “Rocky Mountain Rustic: Historic Buildings of the Rocky Mountain National Park Area” will speak about this distinct style of architecture. No reservations necessary. Free.
