Historic Preservation Board
Founded in 1874, the Town of Castle Rock possesses a unique architectural identity that contributes to its appearance. Early events and industries influenced the homes and buildings constructed here. Settlement in the area began in the 1860s and was shaped by agriculture and ranching.
In order to preserve the Town’s historic and cultural heritage, the Historic Preservation Board was created in 1995. The board serves as the review entity for new buildings and alterations to existing structures within the historic downtown area, located east of Interstate 25, west of Gilbert Street, south of Wolfensberger Road and generally north of South Street. The Historic Preservation Board also reviews applications for landmark designation and provides Town Council
with guidance on designating structures. The Board meets the first Wednesday of each month.
An overview of the Town’s unique architecture can be found in Castle Rock Style
. Castle Rock Style serves as a guide for new construction and alterations to historic structures within the Town. This publication can be obtained at Town Hall.
