Carlton Ave. Retaining Wall – Bethlehem PA

Description

“Stone retaining walls that line streets and highways throughout the region — along Route 611 in Easton, Spruce Street in Tamaqua and Carlton Avenue in Bethlehem — were WPA projects.”

This approximately 350-foot-long retaining wall begins on Carlton Avenue halfway between W 8th and W 9th Streets, then curves to the west on W 9th St. to Hess St. The wall is identified by an inscribed stone at its north end (on Carlton Ave.): “Erected by W. P. A. 1935”
