  • Historical park needs water, sewer

    While the South Platte Valley Historical Park features an authentic 19th-century fort, a trapper cabin and a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse, two things it doesn’t have are running water and sewer lines.

    Now, volunteers and city officials want to change that, with a $292,000 plan to extend city lines to the site at 2001 Historic Park Way northwest of downtown. Once the new water and sewer lines are in, the historical society plans to build a 2,000-square-foot visitor center on the historic park grounds.

Swaney stopped to talk with every kid as they arrived, asking how they were doing, giving them a big hug and smile and exclaiming how happy she was to see them.
