Long Description:
The WPA Armory in Minco is located on W. Pontotoc Street between 4th and 5th. Behind the armory, there are several items constructed in a park, which include a performance stage, picnic tables and a fireplace.

The stage is constructed of coursed native sandstone and has seven steps leading to the platform. The front of the stage facing the park is curved.

Just west of the stage are two long picnic tables with sandstone bases and concrete tables and bench seating.

West of the tables is a sandstone firepit which looks usable today. It is also constructed of sandstone.

We did not find a WPA shield on the stage, however, additions to the municipal park are noted in the Oklahoma Landmarks Database showing a WPA appropriation of $6,240.

Project type: Park structure/building (other than lodge)

Date built or created: 1940

City: Minco, OK

Condition: Good upkeep with a little wear and tear
