Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) completed rehabilitation work at the Berkeley Springs Sanitarium. The work was done following the 1936 spring floods that had damaged the facilities. The high water left behind mold and debris in the Sanitarium building. The work done by WPA crews also included repairing and cleaning the pool, which used water from the therapeutic Berkeley Springs.
