During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Pueblo’s old Northside Neighborhood was a place of grandeur, boasting some of Colorado’s finest architecture.  A handful of successful businessmen who lived in this neighborhood made a name for themselves statewide and helped put Pueblo on the map.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Beaumont home was designed by Morris Stuckert near Pueblo’s Mineral Palace Park and the Grand. The house represents residences within the area associated with the John H. Thatcher family; one of Pueblo’s most well known citizens in the city’s late 19th century boom years. Beaumont was a close associate, secretary and confidante of Thatcher, as well as a prominent Pueblo citizen in his own right.

After initially wanting to demolish the building, the owner, Parkview Medical Center, obtained a grant from the State Historical Fund which surveyed the Historic Northside Neighborhood in 2004, including the Beaumont Home. Since being listed on the Endangered Places, a Historic Structure Assessment was completed and rehabilitation of the interior has been completed. The home is currently used by Parkview as a residence for visiting physicians.

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.
