Pueblo’s “Bojon Town” featured in this compelling narrative

Take some time to read through this fascinating narrative: “Pueblo’s Bojon Town is a traditionally Slovenian neighborhood in the shadow of the steel mill. Currently the neighborhood faces a number of challenges from both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which has declared the neighborhood a Superfund site, and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), which has proposed to demolish dozens of houses in the neighborhood to expand Interstate 25. For this project, Historitecture helped develop and lead an innovative community-built survey process, which provided the bulk of historical and architectural information usually gleaned from archival research. The results were a treasure trove of memories that helped craft a compelling narrative of one of the most remarkable–and unusual–little neighborhoods in Colorado.”
