During Black History Month 2022, the Pueblo chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) honored the Coronado Lodge for the role it played welcoming African American travelers during the era of segregation. The 1940s motel was listed in The Green Book. Front Range prepared the National Register nomination for the property, which was listed in 2020. The full account appears in the March 1, 2022 Pueblo Chieftain.
On March 2, 2022, the National Park Service announced the listing in the National Register of the former Buena Vista Ranger Station of the US Forest Service. Constructed ca. 1937 on Buena Vista's Main Street, the building served initially as an office for the Forest Ranger for the Cochetopa National Forest, which was created in 1908, and later filled a similar function for the San Isabel National Forest. The Buena Vista building is significant for its association with the administration of the national forests in Colorado and as an example of an in-town combination ranger station, containing a ranger office, storage, and a garage. The project was privately funded by the owners. The image below shows the ranger station in 1939.
