Home Economics Building, Wellston OK
Project type: Education and Health, Schools
Completed: 1935View Project in a Separate Window
“This building is listed on the Oklahoma Landmark Inventory database as the Industrial Building for Home Economics District #1. It was a WPA construction from 1935 with an appropriation of $5,984.
The building is constructed of native sandstone. It is a high-ceiling one-story building, with a gable roof that does not extend to the outer walls. The Oklahoma Landmark database indicates that it is possible the original roof may have burned and has been replaced. All windows have been infilled with wood. We were unable to determine how the building is being used at the current time.” (waymarking.com)

I have lived in Wellston for 61 years and during that time it has always been a gymnasium. Played many basketball games in that building.
