County honored for work on historic cabin
Mesa County will be recognized Monday for work restoring a historic cabin, which now is surrounded by the Long Family Memorial Park.
The Grand Junction Historical Preservation Board will present Mesa County commissioners with an award recognizing work on the building done since 2005, which included updated heating, plumbing, electrical systems and more.
The cabin dates back to the 1930s, according to the historical preservation board.
“We found little treasures once the work began,” Greg Linza, Mesa County parks and grounds manager, said in a county release. “Under the old carpet, we discovered wooden floors that we were able to restore.”
Linza and commissioners will be recognized at the commission’s regular meeting Monday.
The late Dr. William J. Long in 2000 donated his 40-acre property off F Road, with the request it be developed into a community park.
