The preservation programs of the Office of Archaeology & Historic Preservation (OAHP) and the State Historical Fund (SHF) are at the heart of History Colorado’s mission to engage Coloradans in discovering, preserving, and taking pride in our architectural and archaeological heritage by providing statewide leadership and support in preserving the places that make Colorado unique.

In order to facilitate Federal and State Compliance projects during the current COVID-19 shut down, the OAHP is recommending that site forms, survey reports, and GIS shapefiles, be submitted digitally. For more information, please visit our Submitting your Data to Preservation Programs page.
