In 2008 the Buckeye School was placed on the National and Colorado Registers of Historic Places. Thanks to a series of grants, fundraisers like the Quilt Show, funds from the Club, and untold volunteer hours, Buckeye School now has a handicap-accessible ramp (2010), a new roof and rain gutters (2013), a handicap-accessible restroom (2014), a fresh coat of paint (2019), electrical wiring updates, plus new steps to the southeast door (2020). Fencing was added to enclose shade trees, the playground, a swing set, and picnic tables for lovely summer potlucks. The Community Club recently secured a grant from History Colorado to repair and replace windows and screens on the school building.
