Founded in 1984, Colorado Preservation, Inc. promotes historic preservation to the state of Colorado by providing advocacy, education, outreach and preservation services to communities and individuals. Currently they are working on 11 preservation service projects. Pannier has had the opportunity to work with them on two this past year.
In 2015, Pannier worked with Colorado Preservation to manufacture three kiosks and six Fiberglass Embedded (FE) panels that sit along a driving tour route for people traveling along highway routes and the Santé Fe trail. The Home on the Range project interprets the history of homesteading though its architecture, material culture and cultural landscapes. It consists of several major components including surveys of Southeast Colorado, National Register nominations of important historical properties, brochures, kiosks and podcasts, and has spanned five years.
This past spring, Pannier manufactured FE panels for the Amache, Granada preservation service project. The 10 interpretive signs placed along the route of the driving tour tell visitors about Amache and the lives of the people who were incarcerated during World War II.
“Robin, my working contact at Pannier Graphics, is a total joy to work with,” said Cindy Nasky, Preservation Service Director. “She is excellent in communication and steady under pressure. I unequivocally recommend Pannier to colleagues.”
