  1. The building in Dunlap, NM served as a school (and church). The building is partially collapsed but the blackboard can be still found inside. I don’t know if this particular building was a WPA project or it was used as a school later on. I do have many photos of that building if needed.

  2. Beata Certo is correct. The building was a WPA project and was in good shape until vandals destroyed the windows and doors. The building is adobe and has not long to live. I believe 1932 was once above the portal. The building replaced a much older board and bat school house, which I do have a picture of but have no idea what year it was taken or who the people are in the picture.
