We are proud to help raise awareness plus public and private support for worthy preservation endeavors. For example, the Historic Preservation Alliance assisted with Monument Valley Park’s centennial celebrations, helped with research and obtained grants to get the park listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Our organization has also published Historic Homes of Colorado Springs and Vicinity by Helen Anderson. We are also working with key community partners to restore and reconstruct Tahama Springs in Monument Valley Park and rehabilitate the original brick home of the Harlan-Wolfe ranch.
