Morse Park Survey Plan Underway
The City of Lakewood received a State Historical Fund (SHF)
grant to develop a Morse Park Survey Plan.
The Morse Park neighborhood is located in north Lakewood between
Wadsworth and Kipling boulevards and W. Colfax and W. 26th
avenues. The neighborhood, like many
older neighborhoods in Lakewood, has its roots in agricultural history. That heritage is still evident today with
large lots, horse properties and agricultural ditches. This eclectic neighborhood was developed over
a period of time and therefore has a number of interesting housing styles and
The goal of the survey plan is to define and prioritize
future areas for in-depth analysis. The
survey plan will assist with identifying and gathering data on the
neighborhood’s historic resources and representative examples of architectural
styles in the neighborhood.
Front Range Research Associates, Inc., the consultant hired
to prepare the survey plan, will be conducting field research as well as
archival and background research to gather historic documentation.
Two neighborhood meetings will be held in 2019. Please check back often as the webpage will
be updated as meetings are scheduled and as the project progresses. Check your
mail for meeting notifications as well.
