PUEBLO – Today, Mayor Nick Gradisar received notice the U.S. Department of the Interior has placed Central Junior High / Keating Junior High School, on 215 East Orman on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Keating Junior High School was placed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties. 

“The Keating Junior High School is quintessentially Pueblo, and so I’m happy to announce it will be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Across Colorado, old but still beautiful schools like Keating are being redeveloped as anchors of culture, arts, and economy. With this announcement, this grand school will be eligible for preservation funds in the future,” said Mayor Gradisar. “I look forward to the day when Keating Junior High is filled with activity once again,” said Mayor Gradisar.

Keating Junior High School District 20 was built in 1923 in the renaissance style is named after J.F. Keating. It was used as a junior high and middle school and later as an alternative school for Pueblo School District 60. In 2009, the school was shuttered.
