Midlothian School (former) – Midlothian OK

Description

“Located in the rural area of Midlothian, southwest of Chandler, (from the intersection of Hwys 66/18, south on Hwy 18 4 miles, then West 2.25 miles on Midlothian Road (CR950), this two-room schoolhouse was constructed by the WPA in 1936-1937. It is a one-story rectangular building with a double gabled roof, and native sandstone walls. The entrances on the south and west have a typical WPA arched entrance, sheltering single doors. The windows throughout have been boarded with wood and painted a rust color. Behind this boarding on the east side is a row of ribbon windows in each classroom. The building has a stone chimney, and exposed rafter tails.

In years past, the school building was occupied as Midlothian Church. The church no longer meets here, but on Friday evenings, the building is the gathering place for residents in the surrounding area, who come for a potluck meal and gospel music. Over the south entrance, a sign reads: Midlothian Mission Music. Unknowingly, we arrived on a Friday evening, and out here in the rural boondocks, the place was rockin’. We’ll be back for sure, for some home cooking and lively music.

The school was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1996.”   (waymarking.com)
