Rocky Ford School is a one-room limestone schoolhouse that was built in 1903. The building served first through eighth grade students in District 70 until consolidation with District 1 in 1938. Although consolidation had been a topic of discussion during District 70 board meetings as early as 1921, patrons chose to rebuild the school after a fire nearly destroyed it in 1927. Builder Fred Hulse used the original limestone during the reconstruction.

Various repairs and improvements were made to the property within its first two decades. In 1987, USD 383 gave the school to the Historical Society with the understanding that it would be used for historical purposes.

The Rocky Ford School committee, chaired by Doug Tippin and composed of other RCHS board members and volunteers, has made additional improvements to the exterior and interior in recent years.

Refreshments will be served. Parking is available at the Faith Evangelical Free Church, 1921 Barnes Road.
