Tom Simmons of Front Range conducted a tour of the Denver Civic Center National Historic Landmark district yesterday as part of the 2013 Doors Open Denver event.
Denver Civic Center, designated a National Historic Landmark last October, was formally dedicated today. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, John Wessels, regional director of the National Park Service, and Ed Nichols, president of History Colorado, spoke at the ceremony, which was co-hosted by Annie Levinsky, executive director of Historic Denver, and Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, executive director of the Civic Center Conservancy. An outdoor celebration had been planned for the Greek Theater, but the previous day's snow and cold temperatures moved the ceremony to the McNichols Civic Center Building (the former Denver Carnegie Library). Bronze NHL plaques will be placed at eight locations in the 33-acre district. Front Range prepared the NHL nomination.
The current issue of the Streamliner (a periodical covering the Union Pacific Railroad) includes an article by Larry Ostresh describing the Laramie Snow Train project. The undertaking relocated five pieces of rolling stock to Railroad Heritage Park. The static display is representative of a Wyoming snow train of the 1950s. Copies of the magazine (volume 27, number 1) may be obtained from the Union Pacific Historical Society. A National Register district nomination, prepared by Front Range, is pending in Washington.
