Francisco Fort was a trading post founded by Colonel John Francisco in 1862 (Back when Colorado was still a Territory). It is the last surviving adobe fort in the State and now houses the Francisco Fort Museum.
The rehabilitation project is funded in part by a grant through State Historical Fund. The project includes adobe repairs, restoration of wood windows and doors, structural repairs, the reconstruction of missing chimneys and installation of new roofing. Here are some more before photos.
