About the Meadow Hollow School
Originally located in the foothills west of Berthoud, the school was moved when Carter Lake was constructed in the early 1950s. It was placed on a ranch near Masonville where it remained until owner Roy Hunter donated the school to the Berthoud Historical Society so it could be brought home and restored to its original condition.
Since that time the one-room school house originally constructed in 1916 has doubled as a museum exhibit and the site of an exciting living history day camp for local youngsters.
