ID Number 88001369
Historic Name DAYTON SCHOOL
Description of Significance THE DAYTON SCHOOL IS A ONE ROOM WPA CONSTRUCTED SCHOOL NEAR LAMONT IN GRANT COUNTY. BUILT OF NATIVE STONE WITH BRICK QUOINS AND OTHER ACCENTS, THIS SCHOOL HOUSE IS SMALLER AND UTILIZES DIFFERENT MATERIALS THAN OTHER WPA SCHOOLS IN THE AREA. MOST WPA SCHOOLS IN NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA CONTAINED MULTIPLE ROOMS AND WERE CLAD ENTIRELY IN BRICK. THIS CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE SUGGESTS THAT THIS SCHOOL IS AN EARLY EXAMPLE OF WPA WORK IN GRANT AND THAT THE CRAFTSMEN WERE RELATIVELY INEXPERIENCED. LISTED IN NATIONAL REGISTER 9/8/1988.
