  • The real property known as the McFarlane House in Central City;
  • The real property known as the Pearce-McAllister Cottage in Denver; and
  • The real property known as the Pueblo Museum Support Center, which was used as a storage facility by history Colorado until the artifacts housed at the facility were recently moved to a more northern storage facility for better access by history Colorado staff.
