Historic Renovation – March 2001 – Colorado Central Magazine
Q: Why do you want to restore this old building?
A: Del Norte has a remarkably rich history, and a surprisingly large number of surviving significant buildings dating to the period before and just after 1900. The Windsor Hotel complex is the largest of them, and is the centerpiece of this important legacy. To quote Ruth Marie Colville: “Imagine the vision and audacity of the people who built this large, elegant hotel in a tiny, remote town in 1876”. We have an opportunity to show vision and audacity in our own time by restoring this landmark as a living history showplace for future generations in our community.
