    The original high school and WPA addition were demolished in the summer of 2015. A new high school was constructed across from the old school and opened in 2014; a new elementary school replaced the now-demolished school in 2016.

    I teach history at Calumet High School, and had just submitted the photo of the Palmyra (NJ) High School Stadium; Palmyra is my home town. We are now talking about the WPA in our US History II class, and I went searching for WPA projects near Calumet, which is about 40 miles west of Oklahoma City. Little did I know that the old building across the street was one of those projects.
