Box Car School

Address: Near S. Platte Hotel on a siding of the narrow gauge RR tracks

The remodeled two-room boxcar had a large wood and coal heater and no water. Students supplied water from the North Fork of the South Platte River nearby. It operated as a school from 1941-1944 with the pupils attending the one at Buffalo Creek after the closing.
