This place Matters! It is now in the Y Historical District. The second African American Historical District in Muskogee, OK. Efforts are being made to restore this area.

Correct; this was an African-American school. My grandmother (and I assume my great aunt and uncle) attended Wheatley during elementary school. She later went on to attend Langston. I've never seen pictures of Wheatley, just saw the name on her old school photos. It's nice to see the place and imagine her there in her youth. I'll be showing these pics to my aunt!

Is it accessible? Does one need to get permission to enter?

Its not a question of "needing" permission but rather "should" you get permission. If you want details, join the forum and contact me.
