Caņon City, CO
This AT&T store previously housed an Alltel Wireless office. The building might be from the 1960s. I believe it has always been used by a telecommunications company since there is a tower in the parking lot. [map]

Honnen Ice Arena
Colorado Springs, CO
Schlessman Natatorium
Colorado Springs, CO
The Honnen Ice Arena and the Schlessman Natatorium were designed by Lusk & Wallace and built from 1963-1966 for Colorado College. There are plans to demolish the Ice Arena once the Robson Arena is completed. I believe that the Natatorium building will also be demolished. [map]

Cuca's Mexican Restaurant

Cuca's Mexican Restaurant was apparently an eight-sided building originally with a dome top. It appears to be a mid-century construction.
