An old stone barn near Pueblo is about to get a million dollar facelift. It’s the last surviving structure of the northern headquarters of the Goodnight Cattle Company. The very real lives of old west cattlemen Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving inspired the mini-series Lonesome Dove – based on the novel by Larry McMurtry. The 1871 Goodnight Barn is said to be one of the most important and endangered historic structures in the southwest. Laurel Campbell leads the Goodnight Barn Preservation Committee the organization working to preserve it. Listen to her conversation on Colorado Matters as part of the full show podcast at cpr.org
