Historical Background - The original dwelling on 1726 8th Avenue was constructed in approximately 1939. It was a 16-17 unit apartment complex that primarily housed students by the 1960s. In 2000, a 1939 Bungalow (5WL.3228, determined not eligible) was moved from 1734 8th Avenue to accommodate a 3900 square foot addition to the 1726 8th Avenue facility. Operated by the Greeley Center for Independence, the facility is now called Camelot Apartments and serves as a staffed living facility for individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and neurological disorders. The complex is currently owned by the Patient Advocacy Team, Inc., a group that has owned the complex since as early as 1985
