Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built the Stratford Grade School, High School, and Gym in Stratford OK, in 1936.

Contributor note:

“This is a one-story buff brick building with a flat roof (except for the arched roof over the gymnasium). In recent years, red metal siding now covers the roofs with a slight gable. The siding extends down the upper walls. Over the main entrance and in two other locations, the roof line has scrolled cornices, with the words STRATFORD and HIGH SCHOOL on concrete panels. The original casement windows still exist in the gymnasium, however, the triple window units in the classroom areas have been replaced with metal-framed double hung windows, partially filled in with wood.

The building faces Oak Avenue and is T-shaped, with the gymnasium extending to the rear. The brick has been covered with stucco and the building has a Mission Revival look. It was constructed by the WPA in 1936.”
