The Lafayette Head House and Ute Indian Agency in Conejos County is one of three historic sites now considered endangered in Colorado, according to Colorado Preservation, Inc.

What endangered places in Colorado are worth saving? And how do they reflect the state's underrepresented and native communities, which can all too often get overlooked? That's the evolving mission of Colorado Preservation Inc., which is now accepting proposals for what to consider adding to next year's list as it marks its 25th anniversary.

Avery Lill first spoke with Kim Grant about this effort in February, when three places were added to this year's list. He's the director of "Colorado's Most Endangered Places" program, which is part of Colorado Preservation, Inc.
