Morse Park Survey Plan

A house located in the Morse Park Neighborhood.

The City of Lakewood received a State Historical Fund (SHF) grant to develop a Morse Park Survey Plan. The Morse Park neighborhood is located in north Lakewood between Wadsworth and Kipling boulevards and W. Colfax and W. 26th avenues. The neighborhood, like many older neighborhoods in Lakewood, has its roots in agricultural history. That heritage is still evident today with large lots, horse properties and agricultural ditches. This eclectic neighborhood was developed over a period of time and therefore has a number of interesting housing styles and architecture. The survey plan defines and prioritizes future areas for in-depth analysis. The survey plan also documents the neighborhood’s historic resources and representative examples of architectural styles in the neighborhood.
