Pipe Line School

Mesa County

Dating from 1922, Pipe Line School is Glade Park’s only intact example of a wood frame rural schoolhouse.  The simple, hipped roof building reflects the commitment of early farming and ranching families to provide adequate educational facilities for their children.

Inside, the original folding partitions used to create two classrooms remain in place.  The school closed in 1951, but the building remains in use as a community hall.  Listed under Rural School Buildings in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
