    School ruins west of Tamaha, Oklahoma. I couldn't find any info on this one other than a map showing it in 1936.

    Had enough Oklahoma schools yet? Here's another:

    This one is a couple miles from the previous one and probably replaced it. I absolutely cannot find the name but I remember it being open up into the '90s.

    I happened on to this one at Pennington, TX. Wasn't looking for it, so it was a pleasant surprise. A WPA school that is now a private home. This nice lady owns it and had four apartments built inside. She lives in one of them and was gracious enough to show me around a bit and tell me about her home.
