Euchee Indian School (Oklahoma)
History[edit | edit source]
The Euchee Boarding School was authorized in 1891 and built in 1894 near Sapulpa, Oklahoma. It was originally a co-educational facility under the direction of the Presbyterian Mission at Park Hill. From 1897 to 1907 it was supervised by the Creek Nation. In 1907 the administration of the school was transferred to the Office of Indian Affairs. In 1925, it became a boys school and in 1929, the integration of the older students to the Sapulpa public school system was initiated. The school was abolished in 1947 and all remaining students were transferred to the Sapulpa schools.
