Laurel began the restoration of the Goodnight Barn over 6 years ago. It was her “pushing” that brought the Barn into focus with the Pueblo community and the State of Colorado. Laurel is a retired Legal Assistant. Retirement was necessary as she just couldn’t find the time to “work” with all her preseration activities! Laurel has served on the Board of Directors of Historic Pueblo, Inc., serving as president twice. She is the current president of the Pueblo Heritage Museum, serves on the board of Frontier Pathways Byway and is a commissioner on the City of Pueblo’s Historic Preservation Commission.
