Alma Stone Church

One of the most treasured historic buildings in Alma was restored in the fall of 2004, thanks to efforts by the Alma Foundation, Town of Alma, and generous grants from the Colorado Historical Foundation and Park County Historic Preservation Advisory Commission.

The little stone building on Main St. was built in 1936 by Alma volunteers. Some of the stone is believed to be from a historic structure owned by the Tabors in the Buckskin Joe town site. It is on the state register of historic properties. Although often referred to as the “stone church,” the building has been used for a variety of functions including parties, meetings, weddings, funerals and more.

Scheuber + Darden and Image Builders were hired to perform the restoration work. The building is owned by the Town of Alma and serves a variety of functions as a public facility. A restroom has been added and a small kitchen is planned, as well as eventual plans for a finished basement.

The historic building is available to rent for private parties, weddings and other gatherings. We’d greatly appreciate any old photos or stories you have about events that took place here.
