Pine Bluffs High School


Read All About It:

Pine Bluffs High School, built in 1929, is a fine example of progressive 1920s school architecture, with interior structural and finishing detailing that is unique. The style of the school in its symmetry, proportion, and decorative detail is of the Classical Revival tradition. The building is exemplary of 1920s masonry design and construction; the multi-colored brickwork and absence of cornicework is also typical of construction of the period. The large steel-glazed window panels were state-of-the-art technology in providing good natural lighting and ventilation for an optimum learning environment. The domed gymnasium-auditorium is the distinctive element of the complex. The architect, Eugene Groves of Denver, was regionally prominent as an inventive designer of concrete structures. The dome is a fine exhibit of the structural engineer's ability to span great spaces with minimal material.
