Join Colorado Preservation’s Endangered Places Program and HistoriCorps™ in preserving and rehabilitating the historic Handy Chapel!
Registration still open for May 3 – 6!
To kick-off HistoriCorps summer 2011 field season, the Handy Chapel Preservation Workshop will preserve and rehabilitate the historic Handy Chapel in Grand Junction. The roof replacement is a crucial first step in restoring the Chapel House so that it can return to use serving the community. The Handy Chapel Congregation would like to use the Chapel House to display a collection of items that will interpret the African American experience in Grand Junction, while also providing space for a nonprofit to run an afterschool program for homeless youth.
Location: Handy Chapel is located at 200 White Avenue in Grand Junction.
Lodging: The work-site is within walking distance to numerous lodging options, shopping, restaurants, and Grand Junction’s historic downtown. Lodging is the responsibility of the participant.
