City Hall – Laramie WY

Description

Laramie, Wyoming’s Art Deco-style city hall was constructed as a federal Public Works Administration (PWA) project during the Great Depression. Construction occurred between December 1938 and November 1939. While Art Deco-style, the building is distinctive in its use of yellow bricks.  The building is still in use today. The PWA contributed a $64,575 grant toward the $130,752 total final cost of the project.

PWA Docket No. WY [X]1081.
