Donated to History Colorado by George Hoover, 2019
Thanks to the generosity of the Buell Foundation, in November 2018 History Colorado hired the Temple Buell Associate Curator of Architecture to manage and expand History Colorado’s architectural holdings and to develop an Architecture Department in recognition of the significant architectural contributions of Temple Buell to the state and the region. All architectural acquisitions from 2018 through 2021 reflect the support of the Buell Foundation.
