The Georgetown Schoolhouse, located in the Georgetown Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District in Georgetown, Colorado is an iconic structure representing the 19th-century mining boom in the Rocky Mountain West. Built in 1874, it deteriorated for over 60 years, hindering the district's restoration efforts. Originally a school, it later served as a storage facility and machine shop before being purchased by the Georgetown Trust for Conservation and Preservation in 2007. Grants were sought to restore this fading landmark, known as one of Colorado's oldest brick school buildings. (Submitted by Christine Peeples)
