20.Description of Significance AS A WPA STRUCTURE IN NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA, THE OAKVIEW SCHOOL IS MOST UNIQUE IN THAT IT EMPLOYS NATIVE STONE AS A CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL. MOREOVER, IT IS ONE OF THE FEW WPA-CONSTRUCTED, TWO-ROOM SCHOOL BUILDINGS REMAINING IN THE NORTHWESTERN COUNTIES. FINALLY, CONVERSION OF THE SCHOOL INTO A PRIVATE HOME DEMONSTRATES HOW SUITABLE WPA BUILDINGS ARE FOR ADAPTIVE REUSE.

THE GABLE ROOF HAS AN INTERIOR CHIMNEY AND A CROSS GABLE THAT FORMS A PORCH SUPPORTED BY FOUR WOOD COLUMNS OVER THE RECESSED FRONT ENTRY. DESPITE RENOVATION INTO A PRIVATE RESIDENCE THAT ENCLOSED THE REAR WINDOWS WITH WOOD INSERTS, THE SCHOOLHOUSE RETAINS MUCH OF ITS ARCHITECTURAL INTEGRITY.
