Sorry about that AA, I was just trying to use my creativity. If we're going to write a story about the area, we might as well go all out.

Hey now... what was so 'of course' about that?? lol. Like I've been there before.

Well, actually, I have, but the only thing I remember is San Isabel lake. And Bishop's Castle, which apparently wasn't there anyway.

Well, with the jewelry shop, at least it's not TOO unrealistic.

New question: On the sides of the streets, what kind of gutters are there (yes, it's important. Speaking of creativity and all... by what type, I mean is it that kind with bars over them hanging off the sidewalk, or the kind that are kind of under the sidewalk, that you can squeeze into (if you really wanted to, that is)
It's okay if you think I'm crazy It really is :P

I'm gonna have to take my camera up there. I don't remember Steven King type details.

Here's a pic from Rye right in front of the fire station, and the other at the post office;



Here, you can clearly see the curb and gutter work.



You'll never guess the motto at the Rye Post Office. Yup, you guessed it, "Rain, snow, or shine!"

It's for drowning people in, of course x]

[quote=Anonymous_Author;1358591]Hello everyone! I need to know anything, and everything about Rye COlorado for my current project. Some of the following questions would be helpful like...

*For school's, is there a school in Rye, or is there a bus to take the kids to another town? About how many people per class (i.e. 2008, 2009... 2022) would you estimate? There are 2 schools in Rye. Rye High School and Rye Elementary School. For middle school, kids go to Craver Middle School located a few miles east of Rye, in Colorado City. I couldnt give an estimate on class size though. I graduated from Rye High School in 2004 and there were about 45 in my graduating class.

*What kind of things are there to do? There is not much to do in Rye unless you love the outdoors. There are a lot of places to hike and there is Rye Mountain Park. If you want to do anything like go shopping ,or go to the movies, residents go to Pueblo, which is about 20 miles away. Also, many of Rye's residents commute to Pueblo every day for their jobs.

*I understand that Bishop's Castle is in Rye. IS this an often visited place, or just more of soemthing that's there? Bisops Castle is located just outside of Pueblo County, in Custer County, it is not in Rye, but it is pretty close. People often visit Bishops Castle. In the summer months it is pretty crowded.

*What do the local people do in the freetime? They pretty much go to Pueblo...

If you have anything else, that would be useful too. I also know it snows alot (this is Colorado... of course it does!!) I'm more looking for activities to do. IS there a park?? That would be sueful to know too...

Thank you!

My fiance and I are looking to move to Colorado from Georgia soon after we get married and we are researching towns that we might like to make our home in. Rye is one of our top picks because of the scenery. But I would like to know about the schools there and also the commute to Colorado City and Pueblo. If anyone could assist in this information it would be sincerly appreciated.

I am going to refer you to this thread here. From it, you can go to the #6 post and find some specifics about school ratings... thanks to our once inhabitant Charles who now resides in Alabama.

I lived in Rye, Co for the first 24 years of my life; graduating in 1985. I have lived in OK for the past 18 years. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about the Greenhorn Valley and the mountains I grew up on. My husband and I are currently buying a house above San Isabel. We only get there one week a year, but it is the most peaceful week of the whole year. When we turn off I-25 at Apache City, I can feel the peace returning to me that I felt as a child and young adult.

I can't be sure of the school system now, but when I went there it was very apparent the teachers REALLY cared about the kids. Not only did they provide us with basic educations, they also helped us learn to be GOOD, productive citizens. I value and exercise those life lessons every day and thank God these people were in my life.

I hope someday soon we will be able to spend alot more time in Rye and San Isabel. It is truly God's Country!!!
