Hopewell District #45 School (former) – Hopewell AR

Description

“Located in a mall White County community near Bald Knob, the Hopewell School building has specific features that identify it as one of several federally funded institutional structures in the county dating from the late 1930’s. … The former school’s exterior is embellished with many elements common to Works Progress Administration structures. For example, its rectangular, one-story plan is constructed of native stone, and there is a one-bay, central front porch with a flat, parapeted roof and arched entry on fie front (east) elevation. The gable-on-hip roof is low-pitched with a wide eave overhang and exposed rafters. As with other federally funded designs, these details borrow heavily from earlier Craftman and Prairie styles.”

The building’s exact location within the town and the structure’s current status are unknown to Living New Deal.
