Historic Architectural Inventory Forms by Front Range Research Associates

Front Range Research Associates were commissioned by the City of Salida to provide a detailed survey of the historic buildings in Salida. These were intensive level surveys that recorded and evaluated properties within and adjacent to the historic commercial district. The project also conducted a reconnaissance level survey of the remainder of the city. All three of the surveys were funded by grants from the Colorado State Historical Fund with support from the City of Salida. The Colorado Cultural Resource Survey Forms are highly detailed records for many of the historic properties in Salida. They are dated to the early 2000s.

Additional Inventory Forms and Structural Assessments

403 (404) Scott Street

There is no architectural form for this property. The current assessor’s card at the county clerk’s office lists the house being built in 1910, and in the August 19, 1910 Salida Record newspaper, it states that M.J. Kerndt did in fact build the ten-room house on Scott Street.

Moritz J. Kerndt was an accountant with the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad; Moritz lived ‘at the foot of Scott’ (see 1916 Salida city directory) with his wife Anna. Only by 1930, does the directory list them at 404 Scott.

Moritz and Anna ran the Majestic Poutry Farm at their residence. They are listed under ‘Poultry Breeders and Dealers’ in the 1913 directory. There are numerous articles in the Colorado Historic Newspapers Database that reference the Kerndt family.
