Incorporating a Piece of History

As reported in a previous post in February of this year, Perry Dean has worked with Fort Lewis College to incorporate a historic sign from the town of Durango. When the Rocket drive-in theater closed several years ago, the College saved the sign from the wrecking ball. We included this element in the design, and the "Rocket" is now the name of the pub and grille that occupies the second floor of the addition to the renovated student union.

Below is a construction photo shortly after installation. Thanks to Okland Construction and San Juan Signs for their efforts in restoring this piece of Durango history, and for making it such an integral part of the project!
