Haskin Elementary School

-A A +A
1919, Mountjoy, French, and Frewen. 550 S. Broadway Ave.

Dominating the west end of Center, this large, two-story red brick building designed by Denver architects is visually enlarged by a high parapet and square corner towers. White stucco spandrels and ornamental panels, located between brick piers, are outlined with raised courses of red brick, providing lively elevations. Bands of windows appear modern for the design, and may be updated replacements. To the south and connected by a covered walkway is the less inspired Skoglund Middle School, a tribute to Modernist minimalism.
