School Rock Wall – Doniphan MO

Description

There was a PWA built school addition within the Doniphan school campus built in the mid-1930’s, however there is no evidence of that older school.  Surrounding the current schools, however, is this well-built rock wall that retains the plaque indicating that it was built by the WPA from 1936-1937. Most of the wall is in very good condition.  Portions have been removed for construction purposes on the northwest side.

    Original schoolhouse burned in Oct.13th 1988. It was rebuilt on the same footprint as the original with the addition of two classrooms.
