Cove Creek High School
My buddy and I were over on old 421 viewing at a Garage Museum (I’ll post it later) when we looked over and saw what certainly resembled a WPA-era building. We drove to it and were awed by the scale and style of this old school, Cove Creek High School. It’s between Sugar Grove and Sherwood NC, in Watauga County, at 36.26318, -81.78538. It’s an historic site and should be, since it was built by local people using local stone during the Second New Deal in 1941. I’m not being mean, but schools these days just aren’t this impressive.
Here are the pertinent plaques:
