The rehabilitation of the Crossan’s M & A Market is becoming a reality, thanks to the perseverance of volunteers in our community. This project showcases how a small group of determined individuals working together with outstanding and committed partners can indeed re-establish vitality in a small rural town by saving an iconic building. The Friends of Crossan’s have contributed over 8,000 collective volunteer hours in both the physical protection of the building and fundraising coordination. They have raised over $127,000 from generous individual donors.
This project is being paid for in part by State Historical Fund grants from History Colorado, and Colorado’s Department of Local Affairs, as well as gracious donations from many other entities and community donors including: the Laura Jane Musser Fund, Gates Foundation, El Pomar Foundation, Boettcher Foundation, Yampa Valley Electric Association, Yampa Valley Community Foundation, Union Pacific Railroad, and the Museum and Heritage Advisory Board of the Routt County Commissioners.
