Construction is currently underway at the Steamboat Springs Depot where a new roof of historically appropriate wood shingles is being assembled. A search of historic images confirmed the original roof material when the building was constructed in 1908-1909. This project is partially funded by a State Historical grant award from the Colorado Historical Society and funds from the Arts Council and the City of Steamboat Springs.

This critical project is the second phase of rehabilitation for the historic Depot. The Depot is listed on the National and Local Register of Historic Places, and has been the home of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council for over 40 years. The building is used daily for many community activities, events and gatherings and the project will address critical elements of the Historic Structure Assessment including site and foundation work to develop proper drainage, installation of a new roof with more historically appropriate material, exterior painting and repairs, replacement of electrical systems, and crawl space ventilation and drainage.

Project Manager Steve Hoots and Project Architect Jan Kaminski are overseeing the project. Central Electric, Wilson Roofing and HE Rogers Construction have already completed essential work. This rehabilitation project will ensure that the Depot remains a significant community space for another 100 years.
