Old School

Built in 1903, this building was an Indian School until 1937 when it closed. There are plans to renovate the building to be used as office space by the Hualapai Tribal Nation. If you are interested in the history of this place, this link will take you to an informative web page.

Begining toworry abbout the area you show, is it all devoid of people. Sad state when a newish building has no owners

The proposed use sounds like a god option for this building

A good use for this building. We had a lady in our book club who remembered having a Yavapai girl back then at their home helping with the chores. Her home was too far to go back everyday. This lady had only sad stories to tell about these schools...
The link is interesting, tks.

It looks to be in pretty good shape, and I guess is solidly built. Hope it can be restored and put to use by the Hualapai people.

With that tree in front it has a sort of haunted look.

It is in what appears to be remarkably good shape for a building that was abandoned 3/4ths of a century ago.

It would be great if they renovate it.

The tales told in that building would be ones that we probably would not want to hear. The attempt in the past to assimilate Indians is a disgrace.

I'm surprised The Hualapai would want to renovate it when I suspect the building reminds them a horrific time in their history.
