While it was a long haul, the rehabilitation of the Crossan’s M & A Market was a success, 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 re-establish vitality in a small rural town by saving an iconic building. The Friends of Crossan’s contributed over 8,000 collective volunteer hours in both the physical protection of the building and fundraising coordination. They raised over $150,000 from generous individual donors.
This project was paid for in part by State Historical Fund grants from History Colorado, and Colorado’s Department of Local Affairs, as well as generous donations from many other entities and community donors including: Colorado Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, Routt County’s Museum and Heritage Fund, Gates Foundation, El Pomar Foundation, Boettcher Foundation, Yampa Valley Electric Association, Yampa Valley Community Foundation, the Laura Jane Musser Fund, Union Pacific Railroad, The Questers of Steamboat Springs, and the Steamboat Sotheby’s Community Fund. Thank you!
