City of Salida Survey Reports
Salida has a rich history and a wealth of architecture to support that history. Salida is home to the Salida Downtown National Register District which includes many wonderful examples of turn of the century commercial structures. The downtown buildings were resurveyed in 2001-2002 by Front Range Research Associates, Inc. This intensive survey of the Salida Downtown Historic District totaled 135 buildings. Part of the project also included a reconnaissance survey which identified priority areas for future intensive survey work within the City. This survey report includes a complete history of the Salida area and the downtown in particular.This survey can be viewed here: 2001 Survey Report

Additional surveys of residential buildings and neighborhoods were completed by Front Range Research Associates, Inc. in 2006 and 2007. The 2006 survey included properties surrounding Alpine Park and selected homes throughout the City. This survey can be viewed here: 2006 Survey Report.

The 2007 survey included 100 properties east of the downtown historic district in the neighborhood surrounding the historic Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. This survey can be viewed here: 2007 Survey Report. All three of the surveys were funded by grants from the Colorado State Historical Fund with support from the City of Salida.
