This Year in Grants

Parker Consolidated School at the Mainstreet Center

Douglas County

Completed in 1915, the Parker Consolidated School Building brought in 38 students (a small number compared to today’s school populations!) of all grades from surrounding schools in Parker, Allison, and Plainfield, and today houses an affordable community children’s theater and dance program that serves as an incubator for a variety of arts and cultural organizations within the community. 

With funding from the History Colorado State Historical Fund, the Town of Parker, a committed steward of the beloved building, will restore historic windows and screens as well as the historic entrance and its character defining features so that the building may continue to serve the community while retaining its architectural and historic integrity.
