New Deal Resources on the National Register

New Deal in Eastern Colorado:
Multiple Property Documentation Form

A Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF) is a format for listing a group of related resources to the National Register of Historic Places. This MPDF is organized around the built resources that resulted from numerous federal New Deal programs in eastern Colorado. It provides a history of the New Deal in Colorado as well as an overview of the types and styles of projects built under the various New Deal programs (1933-1943).

Within the New Deal in Eastern Colorado MPDF you will find historical historical background on Eastern Colorado during the Great Depression, an overview of the work of the New Deal programs in Eastern Colorado, the types of projects completed in Eastern Colorado, how to determine if a New Deal Resource is eligible for listing in the National Register, and a list of New Deal reference sources.

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.
