Location: 809 C Ave

Lawton High School is an excellent example of Classical Revival architecture adapted for public buildings and the Modern Movement style. It was significant also as the only secondary school in Comanche County built in the Classical Revival style.

It was built with two distinctive features – six massive columns of the Ionic order on the south side and a copper-covered dome. This dome served as an aerial landmark for local and military pilots and can be seen from Interstate #44.
