Chilocco Indian School placed on historic register

The old Chilocco Indian Agricultural School in Oklahoma has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The school was founded in 1884. It closed in 1980 after educating thousands, mostly from tribes in Oklahoma.

The Otoe-Missouria, Ponca, Pawnee, Kaw and Tonkawa tribes share ownership of the 10,00-acre campus and passed resolution to support Chilocco's placement on the register. They want to preserve more than 70 buildings on the site.
