Gymnasium – Hennessey OK

Description

This gymnasium was constructed in 1941-2 by the Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA). It is a one-story red brick building on South Main (Highway 81). The Hennessey grade school was attached to this gymnasium on the north side, but has been torn down.

The wall of the old classroom building has the cornerstone showing 1941, and above that is mounted a bronze WPA shield showing 1941-2. More information is needed to determine whether or not this gymnasium is being used today.
