Historic Preservation.......

Cultural heritage in the Rocky Mountain Region, represented by historic architectural and archaeological resources are often threatened by the elements as well as the still persistent throw-away mentality of today's American culture. It is therefore essential to stabilize what is available to narrate the regional and historical story. There are many historical societies and local grass-routs interests helping to recognize and maintain heritage sites & Stewart Architecture is proud to assist and share in the commitment.

The Grasso Homestead is a fine example of homesteading @ the turn of the century, family history and demonstrates the progression & plight to sustain livelihood in the "new land". Located in Superior Colorado along South Boulder Creek.

Buildings Restored: Old Grasso Family Farmhouse, Grasso Barn, Privies, Root Cellar, and the Family Bungalow.
