Ardmore High School | Ardmore, Oklahoma

In 1915, Ardmore High School began conducting classes in a beautiful new building on North Washington. In the 1940s, my grandpa and, a few years later, my grandma went to school there and graduated from AHS.

By the time I entered the Ardmore Public Schools, the High School had moved to a new building, and the Middle School was promoted to the Washington Street building. In the 1980s, I spent seventh and eighth grades there, though I don't think I ever used the front entrance - we usually entered from the recretation area out back.

I sent my research associate (my mother) to get a current picture of the building. I'm not sure what the building is used for now - or who owns it; several years ago the middle school moved to a new facility. My mother said that it is in sad shape, with little maintenance and lots of peeling paint.

Aren't research associates wonderful! I have one too - same kind. I'm sorry to see the school in disrepair though.

Oh, I notice you've changed your blog name. Congratulations. I need to change the link on my blog and the link in an upcoming pug post. Off to do that now.
