THROWBACK THURSDAY! Featuring: The Lamp Post Lodge, Westcliffe, CO.

Located in historic Custer County, Colorado, the town of Westcliffe is home to an abundance of passionate stargazers. While there are several awe-inspiring stargazing spots in the area, the Lamp Post Lodge offers “dark-sky” mountain lodging in the heart of the Wet Mountain Valley, at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It boasts crisp linens, cozy atmosphere, fresh mountain air, majestic panoramic views, and, of course, those stars!

The Lamp Post can accommodate individuals or group events, offering the entire hotel property for large gatherings. It’s a convenient short walk from Westcliffe’s Main Street. Visit their web site at:

In 2011, Paxton Signs designed the Lamp Post Lodge sign remotely, via the Internet. We’ve never had the pleasure of personally meeting the owners, Dick and Barb Jones. However, because they are serious business owners and community leaders, working with them on-line and in phone conversations made our collaboration smooth and seamless. We produced their 2-sided highway sign (above) in-house, sizing MDO signboard plywood to fit within their existing brick piers. All surfaces were double-coated with high-quality, outdoor latex paint to withstand the exposed sign location.

Paxton Signs’ more than 37 year history includes hundreds of signs. Some are major monument signs, some small business signs. We’ve created ranch signs, lighted signs, signs made from recycled wood, hand-painted signs, carved signs, vehicle and fleet graphics – a continuous variety of communication art, serving Fort Collins and northern Colorado.
