Cherry Grove School (former) – Quapaw OK

Description

Just south of I-44 in the northeast corner of Oklahoma lies a historic 1936 school building built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). “This one-room, rectangular (23′ x 45′) structure is made of uncut native stone.”

The building is now privately owned. Remarkably, Google Street View imagery from I-44 shows the building to be extant as of 2017, even given that there is no exit to S 680 Rd., on which the structure resides, from the interstate.

    My father (Sidney Shouse) & his brothers attended this school before it was upgraded by the New Deal and I have a copy of picture with the teacher and students taken in front of the school Circa 1912 and names of all but one student listed by my father.
