On April 28, 2016 the Dover Board of Education voted unanimously to demolish the WPA gym. After exhausting all possibilities including a report from a structural engineerthe state fire marshal, and the Arkansas Department of Education it was clear to the Board that the gym should be demolished.


A memorial service will be held on the steps of the WPA gym on June 4, 2016 at 7:00pm. The building will be open for public visitation May 28-30 from 8:00am to 2:00pm and May 31-June 3 from 7:00am to 7:00pm. A memory box will be located inside the gym.  Friends and family are invited to write a memory on a piece of paper or photograph and place it inside the box.  At the service on June 4 the memory box will be walked over to the High School gym by candlelight procession and placed inside.  This is designed to "capture the spirit" of the old gym and carry the memories that are held inside to the High School gym for preservation. The public is invited to attend.


A replica of the old gym is in production using rock and the plaque from the WPA gym as a base. Floor from the WPA gym if any amount can be preserved will be laid in the High School gym under the replica as a memorial. The memories placed in the memory box will be placed inside the replica for permanent preservation.


Demolition will begin on June 6, 2016.
