The construction of Bogue, from left, Monson and Willet halls in 1966 helped establish the campus for Yampa Valley College, now Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus. Monson, in the foreground of this undated photo, was the first of the three that will be torn down to make way for a 60,000-square-foot administrative and classroom building on the campus.

Local college tears down Monson Hall
Denise Roach had mixed emotions Monday as she watched excavators tear through the wood and brick that made up Monson Hall on Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus. Bogue, Monson and Willett are being razed to accommodate a 60,000-square-foot administrative and classroom building that will use geoexchange heating and cooling technology. Monson was the first to go.
