Image by gregor_y
Built as the Stewart Hotel in the 1870s, then became St. Mark’s Mission Church of the Transfiguration in 1899. St. Mark’s has been a bunkhouse, hotel, dormitory, church and vicarage, the Evergreen Players’ "Little Log Theater," and offices for the Colorado Philharmonic Orchestra, University of the Wilderness and today’s Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration. The Historic Preservation Board of the Church of Transfiguration applied for and received grants totaling 0,000 since 1993 to restore and preserve St. Mark’s.
