Coal Creek School

-A A +A
1922. 17700 E. 8th Ave. (northeast corner of Telluride St.)

Shielded from subdivision by the Springhill Golf Course, this simple clapboard box is set on a concrete footing and covered by a front gable roof with clipped peaks. A shed-roofed south entry leads to a cloakroom and a well-preserved single classroom heated by a large potbelly stove. Outbuildings include twin outhouses, a windmill, and a small shed and corral for horses that some students rode to school.
