National Register of Historic Places.

Turns out the Switzerland Trail of America is already listed, as of 9/18/1980, as a Historic District, with the National Register of Historic Places, No. 5BL.358.1.

I've tried to link to the search page that summarizes this, but results are not linkable. Search at this site under Geographic Location: State Colorado County Boulder, and one of the items down the list is a link for Denver, Boulder and Western Railway Historic District.

The data presented are:

Unfortunately as you soon discover, the links to the pdf documents reveal the data have not yet been digitized.

Following up on the story about No 30, I discovered this information in a publication from the Colorado Historic Society (page 10).

I wonder who spearheaded this nomination. More research.

The description of the line cited in this document is actually incorrect--Ward to Eldora, Boulder County. I wonder if that is how the line is described in the actual designation.

For the current project, finding this designation is significant.
