At CRMS, there are many projects and programs that require funding to be completed. Several of these projects are related to maintaining the campus and its buildings. CRMS remains committed to preserving its property and its history, while at the same time ensuring that the school’s facilities are appropriate for educating the students of today and future generations.
Your contribution to the CRMS Capital Fund supports important projects that will benefit this historic campus. If any of these speak to you or to your experiences and you would like to make a gift to the future of the school, please contact Heath Hignight
, Director of Development at 970-963-2562 to discuss them further.
Bar Fork Facility Remodel
The next capital improvement is the Bar Fork, our beloved dining hall and gathering area. The scope of the improvements includes everything from elevating our food preparation areas and service to our seating and dining experience, while maintaining the architectural qualities that make the Bar Fork a hallmark of the CRMS campus. Your gift could be the one that gets it all started!
One of the oldest buildings on campus, the Barn serves as the school’s largest gathering place—an agora for new family orientations, all-school meetings, theater and music performances, and guest presenters. Built in 1896, the distinctive structure was part of the original Bar Fork Ranch property on which the Holdens' launched the school in the 1950s, beginning service with animal stalls, a dirt floor, and that iconic roof inspired by Japanese architecture. To extend the legacy of this facility well into the school’s next 70 years, CRMS intends to renovate the interior to improve utilization and safety, creating a space with additional theater-style seating while maximizing floor area.
