Buildings of Colorado

Buildings of Colorado Book Cover

by Thomas J. Noel, published by Oxford University Press

Tracing Colorado's architectural development from its Native American origins, Buildings of Colorado covers the villages of Mexican settlers and mining camps hastily constructed during the Pikes Peak gold rush and later bonanzas. It features the forts, farms and ranches of pioneers; homes, churches and schools of early towns; and modern industrial centers and vacation spots. Prehistoric cliff dwellings of the Anasazi Indians at Mesa Verde, the U.S. Air Force Academy north of Colorado Springs, and contemporary ski resorts such as Aspen and Telluride exemplify the dramatically disparate structures of Colorado's built environment.
