Description:

A single story, two classroom building, the Antioch School is rectangular (69′ x 27′) and is constructed of red brick laid with a running bond. The stepped roof is gabled, with a cross gable extending over the front entryway. The front and end gables are filled with wood, clapboard siding. With brick sills, window openings reach to the eaves and contain original wood sash windows. On the front a brick addition for bathrooms has been attached. This addition is such that it pretty much impeaches the architectural integrity of the structure.
The brick materials of the Antioch School are somewhat unique for a WPA-constructed rural school. It is significant too that there is no legal record of the property upon which the building is located as ever having been deeded to the school district.

VERBAL BOUNDARY DESCRIPTION: From Elmore City go seven miles north on state highway No. 74 to the Antioch community and turn west one-half mile to the site of the school building, it being located on 2 acres in the SE corner of the SE 1/4, SW 1/4, SE 1/4 in Sec. 16, T 3 N, R 2 W
