Today, Front Range staff presented the Lake Hotel National Historic Landmark nomination to the Landmarks Committee of the National Park System Advisory Board in Washington. The Landmarks Committee recommended that the nomination be forwarded to the Advisory Board for approval. Architect Robert C. Reamer transformed the original 1891 hotel in Yellowstone National Park into a Colonial Revival grand resort hotel in a series of remodelings and expansions beginning in 1903-04. Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk appeared before the committee and urged approval of the nomination.
Beth Eden Baptist Church at 3241 Lowell Boulevard became Denver's latest Landmark following an 8 to 3 vote last night by City Council. Historic Denver, Inc., and area neighbors filed a Denver Landmark application after the owner of the property applied for a certificate of nonhistoric status, which would have facilitated the building's demolition. Tom Simmons of Front Range was among more than twenty speakers supporting the designation. He discussed the 1931 Tudor Revival church's significance as a work of Denver architect William N. Bowman.

Front Range prepared the nomination for the Town of Saguache.
