Como School

Park County

Como School operated from the 1883 construction of the original, wood frame grade school building through 1948, the last year of its use as a public educational facility.  In addition to the hipped roof grade school, there is a small gabled roof building that was moved to the school grounds during the early 1930s to serve as a high school.

The complex also includes two outhouses and a small storage shed.  After closing as a school, the property was acquired by the Como Civic Association, and it remains in use as a community center.  Listed under Rural School Buildings in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
