Custer County High School and Adobe School, Custer County, Colorado

The first Custer County High School building stood in what is now the parking lot to the west of the existing building. The voters of Custer County approved the building of the school in May of 1921. The building was demolished in 1974 to make way for the new District C-1 consolidated grade school and high school building.

For many years the people of the Wet Mountain Valley looked at the little one-room Adobe School as a landmark in the community. Now it is gone but lingers in the minds of many.
