Description

Public elementary school in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Cornerstone says 1936 so assume that was completion date. The building has been added onto a few times and is still in use as an elementary school. The district’s architect says it “has good bones” so the district is implementing a $5.5 million expansion and complete renovation to continue serving up to 500 students for years to come.

“The entrance is accessed by two wide sets of concrete stairs, with 7 and 9 steps. The stairs have brick sidewalks. The north and south sections of the building are slightly projected. The building architect and builder was W. H. Wolaver. A stone retaining wall separates the school property from the sidewalk. Two of the original concrete ‘WPA Seals’ have been preserved and inset into a newer concrete sidewalk.” (waymarking.com)
