Rock School, north of Sand Springs, Oklahoma.
I recently stumbled across the remains of this old school in the floodplain of Lake Keystone, Oklahoma.
Prue, Oklahoma. WPA built school 1939-1940. Completion of the construction of Keystone Dam and Lake by 1964 put 90% of Prue underwater and the school closed.
Good one Jay!
Not really that old but an active Amish schoolhouse, the way it used to be.
Hartford, Arkansas. Built 1910 and housed all twelve grades.
I may have posted this one before, I forget. 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
Caddo, OK High-school gymnasium built by WPA finished in 1940. Used to house German POW's during the war.

Logan Hill School 1898-1940
Currently being used as a Grange Hall.
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.
Getting with the times:
Winganon, Oklahoma. Gymnasium/auditorium built in 1938 as a WPA project.
