Well, the Centennial State doesn’t stop there. There is another school-turned-home on the market in Hereford, an unincorporated community in Weld County.

According to Zillow, architect John Shellette Van Bergen, known for his work with Frank Lloyd Wright, built the Hereford Schoolhouse at 67300 Circle Dr. in the 1920s.

Since then, the residence has undergone a complete renovation — it now features large windows, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and French doors. Features such as clawfoot tubs and antique coal stoves help preserve the historic charm of the home.

Outside, the property covers three acres near the Pawnee National Grassland, which the listing says is “known for first-class birding with over 300 species in the area.”
