The Colorado State Review Board recommended listing of the Tarryall Rural Historic Landscape District (RHLD) in the National Register of Historic Places on 19 September. Marilyn Martorano of Martorano Consultants LLC assisted Front Range with archaeological aspects of the nomination. The 28,000-plus acre district extends for more than 39 miles along County Road 77 (Tarryall Road) in Park County, Colorado. A historic road extended through the district from Colorado City to mining areas at Fairplay and Tarryall in the early 1860s. Improved access made the area attractive for cattle ranching and hay raising which became the historic focus of the region. The district includes more than twenty ranch headquarters, recreation-related resources, one-room country schools, and an abundance of Pioneer Log construction. Two owners of water rights were permitted to opt out of the district creating a discontiguous district of four pieces. The district will not be forwarded to the National Park Service until the expiration of a water rights comment period in mid-December.
