HistoriCorps just wrapped up its second summer at Buffalo Peaks Ranch. For the past two weeks HistoriCorps’ amazing volunteers have transformed the ranch’s Cooks House and Bunkhouse.
Two years ago the Cooks House was in dire need of a new roof, and a new paint job!
Fast forward to just a few days ago, and you’ll see the new cedar shingle roof, and many fresh coats of paint. HistoriCorps also painstakingly rehabilitated all the old windows.
Is this REALLY the same building??
And here’s the Bunkhouse two years back, complete with a leaky roof and peeling boards:
This past weekend HistoriCorps volunteers repainted one half of the old structure. We’ll tackle the rest soon!
Step by step, Buffalo Peaks Ranch is coming back to life. We’ll be bringing more and more books & people to the ranch. Stay tuned!
The Rocky Mountain Land Library’s thanks goes out to HistoriCorps and all their inspiring volunteers. We would also like to thank the South Park National Heritage Area for the grant that made this summer’s work possible!
