News

As of April 1, 2020, Colorado State Archives has been closed to in-person assistance without an appointment and the 1313 Sherman building has been locked down. While our building is closed to the public, we are still open for business for Coloradans.
Capitol Complex and the Colorado State Archives staff had an interesting Christmas Eve during our recent record-setting cold snap, when they were notified in the middle of the night that a heating coil was leaking and causing damage to important and historic documents on all four floors of its downtown Denver facility.
