Description

What was then the Coweta city hall was built by the WPA in 1939-1940. The city hall has since moved, and this building now serves as the town police department. The Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory form for WPA projects in Wagoner County described the building and its significance:

“A single story structure with a flat roof and parapets, the Coweta City Hall is…constructed of uncut and rusticated native stone… The clear allusion to art deco style makes the Coweta City Hall relatively unique for a WPA building. And within the community the structure is notable for its type, style and workmanship.”

A fire station built next to the city hall (sometime between the New Deal and 1985) was constructed to match.
