The Town of Windsor collaborated with Colorado State University (CSU) graduate students to conduct a historical survey of Windsor’s churches and sugar beet factory structures.

The students will hold an open house to showcase their findings from 5-6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5, at Town Hall, followed by a presentation before the Town Board and Historic Preservation Commission.

The students completed a Historic Resources Survey for 11 historic structures in Windsor, including:

  • Windsor Church of Christ (102 Elm St.)
  • True North Church (129 Walnut St.)
  • Bethel Lutheran Church (328 Walnut St.)
  • First United Methodist Church (503 Walnut St.)
  • St. Alban’s Episcopal Church (311 6th St.)
  • First Christian Church of Windsor (530 Walnut St.)
  • Faith United Church of Christ (1020 Walnut St.)
  • Windsor Assembly of God (416 Oak St.)
  • Sugar Beet Factory – Storage Building Remains (25 E. Walnut St.)
  • Sugar Beet Factory – Chimney (25 E. Walnut St.)
  • Sugar Beet Factory – Silo (15 E. Walnut St.)

For each survey, the students conducted research and fieldwork, meticulously documenting each site with photographs, maps and a written description. The resulting historical findings and narratives will be on display to the public at the open house.

The project was completed as part of a graduate research seminar in state and local history at CSU. The class is a hands-on practicum to provide local histories for clients seeking information to manage cultural resources, recognize community heritage, or otherwise improve their towns and neighborhoods through active and engaging histories.

“This partnership has been extremely valuable — the town has been able to gather important data on our historical structures and the students have been able to gain ‘real world’ experience through a hands-on project,” said Senior Planner Joshua Olhava. “We’re excited about this partnership and look forward to future collaborations with CSU and other universities."
