Boynton, OK, Armory main entrance(Credit: Michele Hansford, 2017)
“This red brick armory was constructed by the WPA in 1936… Architecturally, the armory is unique in terms of materials in that brick WPA structures are unusual in northeastern Oklahoma. Moreover, nothing in Boynton compares to the structure in terms of scale. This WPA project also gave work to those desperately in need of it and infused wages from almost 75,000 man-hours of labor into Boynton’s economy.”
The building, which is located at the northeast corner of Porter and 3rd, is currently vacant.
