Longmont Then And Now #12: Columbine School

Located at 621 Baker Street, the Columbine School was built in 1906 and opened on April 1, 1907. Constructed in "Classic Revival" style, it had eleven school rooms: three in the basement, and four on each of the two floors. It also had a "rest room" (teacher's lounge) for teachers which was a new benefit back then.

Today, at 104 years old, Columbine is an elementary school in the St. Vrain Valley School District. I'm wondering why this building is not registered as a Longmont historic landmark? If you know, drop me a note or leave a comment.

A restoration effort was completed in 1982:
