Labo Del Rio Bridge
County Rd. F50, over Piedra River
National Register 6/24/1985, 5AA.287
The 1913 bridge is an example of construction considered quite advanced for its time. A Kansas company built it using rivets, rather than pinned connections. The bridge was replaced at its old site along US Hwy. 160 and moved to this isolated crossing of the Piedra River. The superstructure is unaltered except for deck replacement. Listed under Highway Bridges in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.

The twin pinnacles, prominent natural landmarks, were home and sacred shrine to an Ancestral Puebloan people. An outlier of the Chacoan culture, Chimney Rock is the most isolated and highest in elevation of the Anasazi communities connected to Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Its core-and-veneer masonry reflects the same architecture found at Chaco. Some archaeologists believe the site was built solely for religious and astronomical reasons.

The 1922 Chromo School served the area’s children from 1922 to 1954, and it continues to function as a community center. The concrete structure is a well preserved example of a rural school complex that also includes a teacherage and privy. Its design is reminiscent of local Hispanic architecture.
