I have introduced the school in previous writings - read about my first teaching assignment, this update, and another update - but I continue to learn about its history. The good people at Abandoned Oklahoma took interest in the school several years ago, and they have put together a terrific video to describe the history, wax to wane.
More to the point, the community was devastated to see the building abandoned and in danger of razing. There was too much history in its walls and the people who understood that yearned for restoration. It was never going to be brought back as a school, but other purposes, and a sizable investment, were in store.
