Upper Ralston Elementary School

Address: 3 mi. W. of 64th Ave. & Indiana St., Golden, 80401

Upper Ralston Elementary School was a brick schoolhouse in District No. 7 that existed under various names from 1870 until 1904. So as not to confuse this school with Ralston Crossing School in District No. 12, it was probably given the name Upper Ralston School because it was located farther "up the creek."
