Volunteer at Handy Chapel Preservation Workshop

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.

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program. In a key finding, researchers found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state! The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
