About the Film

Crowning the summit of Brown’s Bluff in the heart of Denver, the Colorado Capitol Building is among the great architectural treasures of the American West. As a living historic museum and active seat of government, the Capitol provides a telling reflection of the people and politics that shaped Colorado amid interest as diverse as its landscape. That story is told in Havey Productions “Centennial Statehouse: Colorado’s Greatest Treasure”.

Havey Productions is a commercial photography and film production company doing business in Denver since 1979. Copies of the film can be purchased on the Havey Productions website, www.haveypro.com.

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

Historic preservation has a direct economic benefit to communities and Colorado! Take a look at the 2017 study, which considered the ways adaption of historic places has a direct financial effect on the state.

This updated, most resent study, was the result of a partnership between Colorado Preservation, Inc and History Colorado, funded by a grant from History Colorado's State Historical Fund. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report 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 determined that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado it produced $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, responds to the state’s changing demographics, and addresses climate concerns.
