Per Oklahoma Place Names: Jones Academy, site in Pittsburg County, 3 miles NE of Hartshorne. An Indian boys school establisherd in 1891 by the Choctaw Nation. The post office at Jones Academy was named Dwight. The academy was named for Wilson N. Jones, principal chief of the Choctaw Nation.
To the best of my knowledge the Academy is still in existance.
