Historic piece of real estate changes uses
Historic Fairmount Hall is now a real estate office.
Independence Realty is settling into the building at 2511 N. 12th St. The company previously operated at 421 Glenwood Ave.
Independence Realty employs nine people and will celebrate its first anniversary June 1, said Independence Realty co-owner Dave Gross.
Gross said his building company, Green Speed, also will call the building home. Gross said Green Speed will handle remodeling of the building’s interior and may update the exterior of the building.
“We have some neat plans for this place,” Gross said.
Fairmount Hall hosted community events and most recently some classes, such as yoga. Gross said the building’s occupants don’t intend to forget about Fairmount Hall’s history. Pictures of the hall throughout the years hang around the office.
“It’s nice to see the history of it,” Gross said. “It was here before there was a 12th Street.”
Community members dedicated Fairmount Hall in 1919, according to the Museum of Western Colorado.
