The Works Progress Administration built a rural school, called the Satterwhite School, for the area south of Elmore City.
“Satterwhite is an area about four miles south of Elmore City. There is no actual town, and only a few local residents. The Satterwhite School is located on Highway 74 at the intersection of CR 1690. This is a four classroom school currently occupied as a residence.
The school is constructed of rusticated and coursed native sandstone and has a hipped roof. Entrances on the front and sides are recessed under arched openings. The main entrance has a single wood door with sidelights and divided transom. The school is symmetrical, with the entrance under a small gable. The ribbon window units which extended to the eaves are partially infilled, leaving a few 2-over-2 double hung windows.”
