Community use for public or private events

SCA Articles of Incorporation: The corporation will specifically own, maintain and manage the real property together with improvements and appurtenances commonly known as the "Salina Schoolhouse" located in the unincorporated Town of Salina, County of Boulder, State of Colorado, which Salina Schoolhouse shall be used and dedicated for such purposes as may be determined by the corporation's Board of Directors for the perpetual use and benefit of the community of the Town of Salina and the neighborhood and vicinity thereof; but in no event shall said Salina Schoolhouse be used for purposes other than religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, recreational or educational purposes.

The building may be reserved by members of the Four Mile Canyon community for private events, with use confined to the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and a maximum attendance of 75 people. Events open to the public may be hosted by local or non-local residents with the same hour and attendance limitations. The rental fee depends upon the size and type of use.
For more information, contact Marti Anderson.

The building is 40 feet by 25 feet with a 14 foot high ceiling.

If you are planning a party and would like to serve food to your guests, Salina Catering by Anne Brady is convenient with delicious food. Anne operated the Salina Cafe across from the church to rave reviews, and today limits her culinary offerings to catered meals and buffets.

There is one out-of-commission outhouse in the back yard that is carved with many initials (we believe it was the boy's) and contains three holes. The other outhouse (girl's) was converted from a two-holer to a modern facility with a flush toilet and sink in 1994. It burned to the ground during the Four Mile Canyon fire in September 2010, and has been rebuilt.

The schoolhouse was restored in 1994 with a Colorado State Historical Fund grant.

If you would like to contribute to our never-ending maintenance and improvement projects, please mail your check to our community's non-profit corporation, the Salina Community Association, c/o Marti Anderson, 175 Gold Run Road, Boulder, CO 80302.
Every single penny adds up, so please consider making a donation of any size!

No non-local reservations are being accepted at this time.


The new 1885 schoolhouse with Libby Lamb (teacher from New York) posed outside with her students. Interior view taken on May 19, 1912.

HISTORY: On December 31, 1885, a New Year's Eve Ball was held in the nearly completed Salina Schoolhouse. When it was finished in early 1886, at a cost of nearly $1,500, the Boulder County Herald proclaimed it "The Pride of Salina". Classes were held in the building until 1952. The owner of the mining claim on which the schoolhouse stood gave the building and some land around it to the residents of Salina.

In 1993, we received a grant from the Colorado State Historical Society to restore the schoolhouse and outhouses, to install a cistern and septic field, and to convert one of the outhouses into a modern convenience with a sink and toilet.

In September 2010, the bathroom burned in the Fourmile Canyon Fire, and was rebuilt in 2011.

In September 2013, the remaining 1885 outhouse tipped over in a mudslide during the flood. The outhouse was repaired and the large rock retaining wall behind it has been rebuilt.
