State Preservation Services

Preservation Publications

The State Historic Preservation Office distributes information to all sectors of society about the importance of properly preserving our significant buildings, sites, structures, and objects.

Guidance ranges from scholarly context studies that aid in the evaluation of properties, to brief how-to brochures, to verbatim copies of laws.

In public meetings held as part of the Society’s long-range planning process, educational products and services emerged as the number-one priority requested of SHPO by the public.  Making written materials more readily available is one way of improving the delivery of service to Colorado citizens.

Many publications may be read online or may be downloaded for future use.
