Fruitdale School in Wheat Ridge is to be torn down, so I ran over this morning to take a couple of pics.


Designed 1927 by Temple Buell, it shows some interesting Art Deco brickwork, a style Buell would evolve into more complex forms like Horace Mann Junior High or Mullen’s Home for Nurses.


Wheat Ridge couldn’t find a financially feasible way to preserve it, so it will be torn down in April.

This building has been saved! It is to become an art center for Wheat Ridge.
