The Importance of Cultural Resource Management to Industrial Archaeology
Author(s): Daniel Dellosso
Cultural resource management (CRM) and industrial archaeology are newer fields to the broad scope of archeology. CRM and industrial archaeology both have methods on identifying and processing cultural resources, but CRM can provide valuable methods on preserving, reusing or identifying industrial heritage. Using the Conejos Gristmill as the cultural resource, this paper will display how CRM and industrial archaeology are needed together to fully understand the cultural importance and physical important of the building in the past and present.
The Conejos Gristmill was one of the first industrial gristmills in Colorado and served the growing community of southern Colorado. This gristmill was built within the Spanish plaza construction style, was in the center of the town, owned by a driven businessman who would go on to become the first lieutenant governor of Colorado. The gristmill is only a few walls and foundations, but those ruins hold much of the town and state’s heritage within it.
