School Building (former) – Alco AR

Description

The one-story stone school was constructed in the Plain Traditional style in 1938 by the NYA. The construction of the school was an economic and education boost to Stone County, one of the most isolated of Arkansas counties, with the lowest population in the state. In 1992, it was converted to a private residence.
