Durham School (Durham, Arkansas)

The Durham School was a historic schoolhouse on Durham Road (County Road 183) in Durham, Arkansas. It was a single-story Craftsman style stone structure, with a gable roof, and entrances at the opposite gable ends. Built in 1829, the school had three classrooms and space for a teacher's living quarters. It was used until the Durham school district was consolidated into that of Elkins in 1948.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1] The building has since been destroyed by fire, and was delisted from the Register in 2018.
