Durango Landmark Properties
Historic Designations
Properties in Durango are potentially eligible for three different types of historic designation: local, state, and national. Properties can be locally significant to be listed in either the State Register of Historic Properties or the National Register of Historic Places. To learn more about either of those processes, please contact History Colorado's Preservation Planning Unit.

As a Certified Local Government, the City of Durango has the authority to list historic properties in our local historic register. Listing has two benefits: documenting our shared heritage and eligibility for financial incentives. Private property owners can access state preservation tax credits and nonprofit/public property owners can access state grants. These funds are to rehabilitate a property for a new or ongoing use.
