Description

The Works Progress Administration built the Jackson School in Pauls Valley OK.

Contributor note:

“Jackson Elementary School is located at 1015 S. Walnut and is an active elementary school today. It has an Art Deco theme, which was rare for the architect Albert S. Ross.

The school is a one story buff brick building constructed in an L-shape, with a flat roof. Later additions to the school have been built at each end, to closely resemble the original. The windows are set in triples with three large panes each. Four belts in darker brick run above and below the windows, and “through” them. The main entrance facing East, and a similar entrance facing south are recessed in a projected facade. The bronze WPA shield is mounted on a side wall within the recessed east entrance.”
