Highland Cemetery Entrance - Lawton OK
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built the Highland Cemetery Entrance in Lawton OK.
“Highland Cemetery, located on NW Fort Sill Blvd. in northeastern Lawton is a large cemetery with over 20,000 burials. The entrance faces west and consists of a randomly laid native stone arch.
A granite plaque above the arch reads “HIGHLAND CEMETERY” and above that a small stone reads “WPA”. At the top of each of the two stone pillars supporting the arch is the date: “19” and “36”.
