Daniels School

Weld County

The 1911 school building served the educational needs of the agricultural community near Milliken for almost fifty years.  Its intact setting, associated teacherage, itself a rare survivor of rural education, and privy further enable the property to convey its rural heritage.  The building exhibits typical elements of rural schools, such as the narrow windows, bell tower, one-room interior, and the entry vestibule.
