One comment on “School – Konantz CO

  1. I noticed the page said the building’s exact location is unknown to Living New Deal. Having nothing better to do, I decided to see if I could find any information on its exact location, and I did.

    I found a site called Colorado Preservation, Inc. with a page that describes the school’s location and shows more recent pictures of the building than what you have. I used the location info to look on Google Earth, and sure enough, it still exists. It’s located on the North edge of Colorado state road DD, about 1.8 miles west of the cemetery and the Kansas border. Its exact coordinates are: 37°23’03.8″N 102°04’38.5″W There is no Google street view on this road, so I can’t get a close look, but the building is definitely still standing.

    I don’t have any pictures since I haven’t been there, but I thought I should share its exact location. As far as I can tell, it’s still abandoned and nothing much has changed. It might’ve been abandoned around 1960 when the school districts in the area changed, but I don’t know that for sure. I hope this helps.
