dc.description.abstractCentral City and Black Hawk are two important historic mining towns in Colorado. The legalization of gambling in these two towns in 1990 has brought significant change to both towns. This thesis seeks to discover the major impacts to historic resources and the degree to which the integrity of the National Historic Landmark District, which each town is a part of, has been compromised. In order to accomplish this, the historical importance and appearance of each town, why these towns turned to legalized gambling, and how the limited gambling amendment has been carried out will be addressed. An examination of local preservation organizations, design guidelines, and ordinances will establish a clear approach to preservation for each town. Major impacts on historic resources will be discussed giving insight to the degree of historic integrity which remains in each town.
