Brush School Improvements – Santa Rosa CA

Description

The WPA made extensive improvements to Brush School, Santa Rosa, California, under Official Project Number 65-3-364. The work to the one-room school house included building stone retaining walls, a playground and a presumed tennis court (Goddard, 1976: 72-74). Though now under private ownership, the stone walls and tennis court are visible from the public right-of-way.

(Goddard does not identify the specific year of construction but it can be inferred from the WPA project number).
