    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

    One of the benefits of living in timber country is all of the small towns that sprung up in their heyday. Lots of history in this area. These 3 schools were photographed today on a ride around the back roads.
