Description

The WPA constructed this simple stone schoolhouse in 1938. It is still in use today. A 1985 Oklahoma Landmarks Survey of WPA projects described the structure in detail:

“This school of twelve to fourteen rooms in a single-story, rectangular (200′ x 60′) structure constructed of uncut native stone in buff and auburn colors with beaded masonry in a random rubble. The roof is flat with parapets. The front doors are recessed behind square entryways outlined in concrete. The windows on the front have continuous lentils and sills…

Few structures in Hanna can compare to it in scale. The strategic placement of the colorful stones gives the school its own distinctive design… The WPA infused wages of some 108,120 man-hours of labor into the local economy and helped to support main street. It also created a new environment conducive to learning for children in and around Hanna.”
