The Pawnee Indian Boarding School was one of the many federally funded boarding schools built for the purpose of assimilating Indian children into the mainstream United States culture. The boys dormitory was built in 1909, and closed with the rest of the school in 1958. It has since remained unused and suffers from water damage.
