Notes
Survey number HABS CO-159
Building/structure dates: 1882 initial construction
Significance: The St. Elmo Schoolhouse is a well-preserved illustration of the wooden frame, one-room school built in many mining camps of Colorado during the 1870s and 1880s. Few other mining camp schoolhouses in the region have survived with so much of their historical details intact. It is also the best preserved and most substantial building surviving from St. Elmo's first boom of 1880-85.
