Fire Department – Cordell OK

Description

The Works Progress Administration built the Fire Department in Cordell, OK.

Contributor note:

“Cordell Fire Department is located in a two-story stone building at 203 E. Clay Street. The stones are laid randomly, and there is a continuous concrete lintel above the second floor windows. A WPA shield on the building shows that it was constructed in 1941.

The building has a flat roof. Second story windows are not boarded and we assume that level is still in use. The entrance consists of a single recessed door and window under a cloth awning. The remaining windows are singles and doubles. Access to the second level is at the east end of the building. The east half of the building contains two vehicle bays.

Concrete block and metal wings were added to the building in later years. The only one remaining is a two-bay metal wing on the west.”
