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 architecture.

 

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.
