LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A historic horse barn at Red Mountain Open Space will soon be getting some repairs and updates from volunteers.

Larimer County Department of Natural Resources is partnering with the non-profit organization HistoriCorps to protect and preserve a 30-foot northern Colorado horse barn.

The proposed work at the horse barn, which was built in 1915, includes repairing and replacing the deteriorated siding of the barn, repairing and replacing trims, priming and repainting the building and replacing several metal roof panels.

The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources said the restoration work will preserve and maintain the structure as a physical remnant of the area’s pioneer agricultural and ranching heritage.

Organizers are seeking volunteers for the restoration. Work sessions are scheduled for Monday through Friday and include meals along with access to tent or truck camping sites that are not open to the public.

"This is a rare opportunity to give back, make new friends, and camp under the stars at Red Mountain Open Space," said a statement from the organizers.

Volunteer sessions:

  • Session 1: June 5–10
  • Session 2: June 12-17
  • Session 3: June 19–24
  • Session 4: June 26–July 1
