Located northeast of the city, the Lone Star school district included nine square miles, had only one school, and 130 elementary pupils. In 1964, voters of the district, opted to join the Oklahoma City Public School system with 172 of 300 eligible voters casting their votes. However, just over 10 years later in 1976, the Lone Star school closed its doors as an educational center for good. Then in 1981, the city sold 19 surplus schools including Lone Star, and the neighboring property owner purchased the school. Also, in 1963 the school was one of many locations set up to provide the Sabin Vaccine for Polio to any who wanted it.

Thanks! This was great! I went to Lone Star in 1975 and 1976, until it closed in 1976 and I lived close by. I even went to Lone Star Baptist Church right next door. I just went and took a few pictures of the exterior earlier this year but your footage of the inside is great and it brought back a bunch of memories.

I attended in 1958-1959 in the eighth grade, moved to Florida. Being an army brat, I was unused to such a small school but it was a fun year.

Can anyone tell me why the school had a baby crib? Just noticed the pics of it and wondered.

Probably for little girl's baby dolls.

There are two abandoned schools in my town, and these make me wonder what they look like inside.

I'm wondering why there is a shotgun on the sink.

After the OKC school system shut down Lone Star, the property reverted back to the original owners. In this case, the west building ( which is no longer there) went to Lone Star church. The east building reverted back to the Chandler family, who probably used their building for storage. I doubt anything in this pictures are left over from the school itself.

I always wondered what happened to that great little school. I can't remember the principals name when i was there but she was sooo sweet. I was there from 1972-73 in the fourth grade. My teacher was Mrs. Morrow. My sister was also there in the third grade. Her teacher and also a dear friend of the family was Mrs A. Brown which was also her previous teacher at Longfellow Elem. WOW time really fly's right on by!!!

My Dad got transferred from Edmond to Mississippi in the middle of the school year in 1968. I was in the fourth grade and really loved going to that school!! I have many great memories of living in Edmond as a youngster. I can also remember an amusement park close by called Frontier City. My first girlfriend lived down the road from us. Her name was Lisa Dick. I cried when I had to move.

I attended this great little school for 7th and 8th grade in 62-64. We had to request a transfer to attend Edmond HS instead of OKC schools. I made many friends who I am still in contact with 50 yrs later. The pictures brought back a lot of good memories. Thanks

I attended Lone Star from 1st grade 1955 through 8th grade 1963. Have life long friends from this school. We still try to get together once in a while for reunions. Wouldn't have traded going to this school for any other school in America !! Our principle Mr. Many was our Boy Scout Leader, Baseball Coach, and just about anything else having to do with us kids. Great man !! Mrs Randolph, who taught English and Music was a strict but loving teacher. Every time I drive by the old grade school I think back to the years gone by… Read more »

Sorry to be the one to correct yur spelling lil' bro, but the name was Mr. Meany. (Keith Meany) I remember the odd spelling because Susan Sampson, a pert, precocious lass who lived on our corner, always derived much mirth from identifying him as " Mr. Meeny." He was a heck of a mover an shaker for his time, getting our lil' country patch in the road involved in first, organized softball, then baseball, track tourneys, boy scouts, 4-H Club and lots of other stuff.

I went to school there in 1972 for kindergarten… I can't remember much from my time there but the memories I do have are good ones. I do remember my best friend from that time… His name was Brian Dale Peacock ; )

My brother Paul and I attended Lone Star in the 60's – 3rd through 6th grades. I remember all of my classmates and hold delightful memories of dear, dear friends, – wonderful teachers, (my favorite was Mrs. Randolph), and fun everyday in the classroom and even more fun playing outside during recess! We would play "Come over Red Rover", and feed grass through the fence to Mr. Chandler's cows – he was our Bus Driver and was very nice and a drove the bus like it was a race car – and no seat-belts! Much more adventurous than having our… Read more »

We moved to the area in 1959, when I was in kindergarten. Lone Star didn't have a kindergarten that year, so my first class there was first grade the next year. Bessie Detrick was my first and second grade teacher, Carol Calhoun for third and fourth grades, and the inimitable Madge Randolph for fifth and sixth grades. At that time the school went to the eighth grade, but by the time I was ready for seventh grade, Eisenhower jr high opened, and I started seventh grade there. The principals at Lone Star were first Keith Meany (pronounced "may-nee") and then… Read more »
