A 12-year effort to renovate the Crossan’s M & A Market in Yampa received Colorado’s most prestigious award for historic preservation during an awards ceremony in Denver on Friday, Jan. 31. The 117-year-old building has since been repurposed into the Yampa Town Hall, a visitors center, and museum.

 

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The successful renovation of a once-derelict building in Yampa, about 30 miles south of Steamboat Springs, received the state’s most prestigious award for historic preservation projects during an award ceremony in Denver on Friday, Jan. 31.

Saving Crossan’s M&A Market, one of the oldest mercantile buildings in Colorado, took 12 years and cost about $1.2 million, according to officials involved in the project.

State Sen. Bob Rankin and Rep. Dylan Roberts presented the Governor’s Award for Historic Preservation to three groups involved in the project, including Friends of Crossan’s Market, Historic Routt County, and the town of Yampa.
