Russell Dougherty School – Edmond OK

Description

“This beautiful old native sandstone building, located in downtown Edmond, was erected by the WPA in 1941-1942.

It served as a Junior High School until 1957, and then as an elementary school. It is still in use today.

The school is named for Russell Dougherty, an Edmond native and the first graduate of Edmond High School killed during World War II.”   (http://www.waymarking.com)
