Community Building – Shell WY

Description

The Civil Works Administration (CWA), possibly succeeded by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), built a community building east of Shell.

Cassity: In Shell, the CWA constructed a log “community house,” a building that was “equipped with a fine dance floor and the building will serve not only the people in the vicinity but will serve a large number from the entire county as this building is located [in the] recreational section of the Big Horn Mountains.”

The exact location and condition of this building are unknown to the Living New Deal.
