Home School Vocational BuildingCourtesy Mississippi Department of Archives and History
The National Youth Administration began construction of a vocational classroom building for agriculture and home economics for the H. O. M. E. Consolidated School in Big Level in 1938 as W. P. 5209. The building was constructed of concrete blocks made at the project site. The project cost approximately $2400 and employed 25 boys. Although the building is no longer extant, the site is marked with a Mississippi Historical monument that acknowledges the NYA construction.
