|Building Style||Single Building|
Built sometime around 1925 in the Freedman town of Boley, Okfuskee County, Oklahoma. Boley was established in 1903 on the land of the daughter of a Creek Freedman as a predominantly Black pioneer town with Native American ancestry among its citizens. Records show Caesar F. Simmons as Superintendent in 1934. Over the years, the school for incorrigible boys transitioned into a Department of Human Services facility before becoming what it is today: the John Lilley Correctional Center, a minimum security prison.
