School Auditorium – Alex OK

Description

“The Alex school complex at 2nd and F Streets is the site of the Roy Peters Auditorium. This brick building was constructed [by the WPA] in 1937 with an appropriation of $20,000.

New aluminum and glass doors have been added, and windows on the south side have been bricked in. A brick extension has been added to the north connecting it to the school.

Dr. Roy Peters, for whom the building was dedicated in 1998, was Superintendent from 1947 – 1961.

Documentation for this WPA Project was found on the Oklahoma Historical Society’s Landmark Inventory: (visit link)”   (waymarking.com)
