Tour: Evans School – June 11

June 11, 2018

We are touring the Golden Triangle’s Evans School on Monday, June 11 from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. The site’s manager, Rob Eber, will guide a tour of the restored classrooms and historic boiler and utility spaces. Rob will also cover the thoughtful work his team is doing to preserve the site’s historic identity.

About the tour: Step back in time and explore the historic Evans Elementary School, located on Acoma Street between West Eleventh and West Twelfth Avenues in Denver. The Evans School is a national and state landmark, built in 1904 as a classic red brick elementary school with a distinctive copper patina cupola. Evans has exquisite hardwood floors, doors and trim, along with eye catching copper stairwells, mosaic entry tile, restored windows and vintage tin ceilings. Architect David Dryden designed the Evans School as a “point of beauty, utility, accommodations and appointments”. Dryden held the position of supervising architect for School District No. 1 from 1901 until 1912. $115,000 was the final price that transformed architect David Dryden’s blueprints into a finished school. – Photo and description courtesy of Evans School
