Thanks for asking! 

McArdle School, which closed in 1959, was located in the Old Mill area on a lot donated by pioneer farmer John F. McArdle. The best "street address" I've been able to track down comes from an Omaha World-Herald article dated 7/20/1959, which places the school at "One Hundred and Sixth Street and Old Dodge Road." 

The construction of the Interstate (ultimately the cause of the school's closing) and other construction have substantially reshaped the area, but the given address and other descriptions of the property would locate it near the end of the Old Mill Road cul-de-sac, just west of the southbound I-680 onramp and east of the T.D. Ameritrade headquarters. I believe that Applied Underwriters' campus currently occupies the site. 

You can find some interesting articles about the school in the Gilbert M. and Martha H. Hitchcock Omaha World-Herald Archives, available from anywhere with your library card. 

Thanks again for asking, and thanks for using AskOPL!
