    Norwood School, Norwood, Arkansas. Built 1937. I got chewed out by a fat, shirtless, redneck for "parking on my lawn." Needless to say, I didn't bother asking to go up close to it.

    I happened across this old school in Delaware County, Oklahoma. It's about two miles west of Cherokee City, Arkansas which is right on the border. I talked to the lone resident, an older Cherokee gentleman. He seemed thrilled to have a visitor and showed me all around the place and gave me a tour of the inside too. He said it was nearly in ruins when he bought it and he paid something ridiculous like $1500 for it and the two acres. Yes, fifteen hundred. He has put on a new roof, windows, doors, heat and air, etc. but the front part interior is not restored. He just uses it for storage. The back room is his living quarters. He said two of his kids live down the road. He told me to drop back in next time I'm in the area. I will.

    I couldn't find any real info on it. It doesn't seem to be listed in any WPA or CCC databases and I'm not finding any county records of historical schools in that county. I did find one old map showing the school there in 1936 but it doesn't list a name.

    Cool story Jay! Last summer I had a similar experience. Happened onto a WPA school in the middle of nowhere TX. Lady that owned it and lived in it gave me the tour and chatted with me for a while. Love this kind of stuff! :clap
