Downtown Building Placed On Register Of Historic Sites

It's been a part of Downtown Grand Junction's architectural landscape for nearly a century and now the familiar building on the northwest corner of 6th Street and Colorado Avenue has designated an historic structure.

The Schiesswohl Building, named for its builder and current owner, still appears today as it did when it was constructed in 1908.

Wednesday night, the Grand Junction City Council passed a resolution placing the Schiesswohl Building in the City Register of Historic Sites, structures and districts.
The designation means the owner can apply for grants and such to help pay for building improvements.

Once a Texaco a gas station, the building has most recently been home to retail stores and business offices.
