Stoneham

-A A +A

Activity in Stoneham (1888, 4,600 feet) centers on the P&M Recreation Hall (1920s), a vernacular wooden structure with a false front and a magnificent back bar inside. A few trees, houses, a four-story metallic grain elevator, and one of the loveliest of the white churches of the Colorado high plains mark this oasis in the middle of nowhere. St. John's Catholic Church (1914) is a tidy clapboard Gothic prayer, rising symmetrically through a similarly pitched entry, church, and closed bell tower to a stark wooden cross.
