Long Description:
This is a two-story brick high school auditorium which faces north on W. Main Street. There is no WPA signage here that we could find. A reference to it was found in the book "Leaning on a Legacy" which refers to a school on Main Street in Marlow as being a WPA project. It is also listed in the Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory as WPA. It was constructed in 1938 with an appropriation of $52,436. The building has embellishments, using stone window sills and small squares at the upper corners of the windows. Bricks are laid in a variety of patterns, (stacked, standing) to add interest.

The facade has a large main entrance with two sets of double doors flanking two display windows, with fixed transoms, all located in one brick opening. To the east and west, additional entrances have double doors. The second floor windows are fixed with stone sills and decorative brick surrounds. The sides of the building have windows set in single and triple patterns, separated by narrow projecting brick pilasters. A wide stone belt course wraps around the building on all sides. The building has a gable roof, currently covered with blue metal siding.
