    I recently stumbled across the remains of this old school in the floodplain of Lake Keystone, Oklahoma.

    Not really that old but an active Amish schoolhouse, the way it used to be.

    I may have posted this one before, I forget. :dunno But the Dunbar school in Atoka, OK, WPA 1942, caught my eye again as it has been recently been given a significant face lift. It looks like it being re-purposed, just not sure yet to what or by whom. My guess is the Choctaw Nation has acquired it, as they are the only ones in this part the country with plenty of money for projects.

    Edit. Found this recent nomination to the National Register of Historic Places for this site. Tells a lot the history of the school. https://www.nps.gov/nr/feature/places/pdfs/16000369.pdf
