Historic Section House
The Elizabeth Section house is representative of the design used by the D&NO Railroad at other locations, including Parker, Elbert and Eastonville. This Section House is the sole remaining section house from this line. After the demise of the railroad, the building was used as a private residence for many years.
The Prairie Development Corporation purchased the building in 2002, and with the help of a Colorado State Historical Fund grant, restored the Section House to its original appearance (while stabilizing it on a new foundation) with the goal of selling it for commercial use. Its original structural integrity is protected by an historic easement.
