It’s About Time: A slice of Grand Avenue history

Glenwood Springs Historical Society
Before, August 1961

The Glenwood Springs Historical Society shared this before-and-after set of photos from the Grand Avenue tree clearcut. In the summer of 1961, the large cottonwood trees lining South Grand Avenue were cut down in order to widen the road. These photos were taken in front of Sayre Park. It’s believed they were taken by longtime local newspaperman, the late Al Maggard.

After, September 1961
