Little Red Schoolhouse On The Prairie

Three Rivers School 1904 on NM Highway 54 between Carrizozo and Tularosa. I don’t know anything about this building other than it sits behind the Three Rivers Trading Post, it’s old, it’s red, and where it is.

The above satellite map shows the location of Three Rivers School. The school and the trading post are 24 miles south of Carrizozo and 18 miles north of Tularosa. The border of the White Sands Missle Range is about a mile west of NM Highway 54 at Three Rivers. The south end of the Valley of Fires lava flow is the black area west of the Three Rivers. East of Three Rivers is Sierra Blanca Peak which is 11,981 ft (3,652 m) high. The Trinity Test Site where the first nuclear bomb was detonated in 1945 is north and west of Three Rivers.
