Description

Originally built as the community’s high school, one of the facilities that makes up what is now Commerce Middle School campus was constructed as a New Deal project. The 136′ x 103′ structure, which features a gymnasium, was “initiated by the Oklahoma Emergency Relief Administration and finished by WPA labor.” It is located along S Cherry St., as opposed to Commerce St.
