Frisco Historic Park Receives Grant

The Colorado Historical Fund recently awarded Frisco Historic Park and Museum $33,580 to help evaluate the condition of the park’s 14 small buildings that date back to the 1800s.

“This project will focus on maintaining the community’s historic assets, namely the outstanding collection of buildings at the historic park,” said museum manager Simone Belz.

After an initial assessment, the museum will develop a plan to ensure that the buildings in the park stay in pristine condition for future generations.

The Town of Frisco already set aside $25,000 of matching funds for any future renovations at the museum, resulting in a total amount of $58,580 for the project.

Now that the money has been put on the table, the museum plans to hire an architecture firm to evaluate the buildings in the park and develop a comprehensive preservation plan.
