In our modern world where almost every school is a sprawling, nondescript rectangle of brick and mortar housing hundreds of students, it is interesting to take a step back in time and revisit what our schools used to look like.   I’ve taken a lot of photos over the years of historic schools in Colorado, and here is a collection of some of my personal favorites. Enjoy!
