Arrangement of the Collection

Initial donation of historic preservation files (first 3 boxes) were arranged alphabetically by site name. Master plan slides were arranged chronologically where possible, and by subject if undated. Accumulations to the collection are added to the end of the collection (box 6 and beyond.)

Scope and Content

The collection is composed of two series: application files from Douglas County Landmark nominations and historic sites in Douglas County that, while not landmarked, were of interest to the Douglas County Community Development Department (specifically, the Highlands Ranch Mansion and the Cantril School) and slides and images assembled for the 1992 Douglas County Comprehensive Master Plan and its updates. A few of the images were created in support of the 1983 Douglas County Master Plan. Includes Audio recordings, legal documents, newspaper articles, photographs and slides, research material and subject files on each site, as well as the landmark application itself and notes and presentations made by Douglas County Staff.

Of note in the historic sites section is a series of photos of tombstones in the Franktown Cemetery, and a large number of photos (digital) of the Hilltop School. The images from the master plan section include many slides of Douglas County landscapes, wildlife, people and locations used by the county planners to explain planning to the public. Some non-Douglas County locations used as examples in the images include Ft. Collins, Boulder, Denver, Washington DC and Santa Fe. The slides also include copies of many of the maps in the Douglas County 2020 Master Plan.
