Four Mile School – Marlow OK

Description

This rural WPA school is still standing but is no longer in use:

“Four Mile School is shown as Marlow, OK, however, it is located in a rural area four miles south of Rush Springs, and northeast of Marlow. It is located just south of the intersection of 1590 Rd and 2880 Rd…

This is a most unusual WPA school and we haven’t encountered a poured concrete school previously. The building is reminiscent of a jailhouse (which we’re sure children of the 1930s considered it). The building was constructed in 1937 with a WPA appropriation of $7700. The style is listed as Art Deco (?!) The building is basically rectangular, with two projections to the front. It has a poured concrete flat roof, and poured concrete walls. The building is in very poor condition at this time and is not in use.”   (waymarking.com)
