Camp Kilmer (former) Development – Piscataway / Edison NJ

Description

The Work Projects Administration (WPA) undertook development work at an unidentified location in or near New Brunswick, New Jersey. As two projects were sponsored by the War Department, Living New Deal believes these projects to be involved with the development of Camp Kilmer, an installation that straddled Piscataway and Edison, within two miles of New Brunswick. Rutgers University’s Livingston Campus resides on part of the old Camp Kilmer site.

WPA Official Project Numbers: 713‐2‐128 (“Improve and rehabilitate buildings, systems, and facilities”), and 13‐2‐22‐92 (“Repair and rehabilitation of building)
