Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Historic Preservation Building

This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are featuring:

Jacoe-Conarroe House
1131 Jefferson Avenue

Katie Mossoni Porta purchased these lots in 1931 and with her husband, John L Porta, built this wood frame home in 1932. He operated a pool hall in town. Pasqual Joacoe, Director of the Colorado Department of Health’s Occupational and Radiological Health Division, and his wife Loretta, lived in the house next, followed by owners of The Louisville Times newspaper, Percy & Carolyn Conarroe, who lived there from 1966 until 1999.
