Colfax Grammar School (former) – Colfax CA

Description

“The Colfax Grammar School (shown below) was built in 1940 as a [Work Projects] Administration (WPA) building. Later it became the Colfax Elementary School. In 1986, it was acquired by the Sierra Vista Community Center, which offers classes, programs, and community events.”

The school has been substantially altered since its original construction and bears no direct indication of WPA involvement. However, sidewalks and retaining walls on the grounds bear at least five separate instances of WPA imprint stamps.
