Red Mountain Historic Horse Barn Rehab, CO

10.08.2023 - 10.13.2023



The Roberts-Goodwin buildings at Red Mountain Open Space serve as physical historic remnants of the area’s pioneer agricultural and ranching heritage. The focus of our work is on a 100+ year old horse barn that shares the history of farmers and ranchers who settled here between the 1870s and 1920. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to camp up at an open space that doesn’t normally allow this type of use. We hope our volunteers are as thrilled as we are to continue this project surrounded by the beauty of Red Mountain Open Space! We will be making camp just outside of the job site. 

HistoriCorps is committed to educating and training volunteers in preservation skills, with an overarching mission of inspiring a preservation ethic in all those involved. Expect moderate difficulty from being at elevation above 7,000 feet, sun exposure, climbing scaffolding, and working at heights.
