Cedaredge

-A A +A

Cedaredge (1894, 6,100 feet) was named for its location at the edge of Grand Mesa's Utah junipers, which easterners called cedar trees. North of Cedaredge on Grand Mesa, three rustic log and slab lodges serve tourists visiting the mesa's 280 lakes and reservoirs: Alexander Lakes Lodge (c. 1910), Grand Mesa Lodge, and Spruce Lake Lodge. In town, notable buildings include the Baptist Church (1905), northwest corner of Main and 4th streets, a blond brick Queen Anne Style church with Gothic-arch cutouts in the square frame open bell tower.
