Our Lady of Guadalupe Church

Our Lady of Guadalupe Church is the oldest parish in Colorado. Meeting in a temporary space in 1856, the parish designation was granted in 1859. Construction of the original church commenced in 1863 and was completed in 1866. Though the exterior was renovated between 1879 and 1881, Theatine priests updated the interior and added stained glass windows in 1921. On Ash Wednesday of 1926 an electrical fire destroyed the church, leaving walls and towers. The adobe towers were razed in 1948 and replaced with the contemporary brick entrance.
