In 1993 the Gunnison County Board of County Commissioners
formed the Gunnison County Historic Preservation Commission (GCHPC)
to provide for the preservation of the cultural, historical, and architectural
history of Gunnison County. The GCHPC is charged with the task of assisting
the community with the identification and nomination of historic sites
to the Board of County Commissioners to be placed on the Gunnison County
Register of Historic Landmarks.
The Gunnison County Register of Historic Landmarks offers
an opportunity to identify significant contributing elements of our
County's heritage and to protect these elements from exterior changes
that would diminish their authentic or distinctive features.
Information about the historic places on this website
is from the applications for inclusion on the historic register and
other sources on local history including books, newspapers, and unpublished
