The J.W Cooper school was supposed to be opened in 1918, but then was used as a emergency temporary hospital during the flu epidemic, because the local hospital did not have enough room. The school was then opened the following year. The town was a mining town, so there were lots of residents, so many were educated at the school. J.W Closed in 1981 and opened a preschool until it closed in 1994. The school is very important to the residents, because most of them went to school at J.W, so they are trying to preserve the school.
They are now trying to repair the school, so I am guessing it is really hard to access.
