The Civil Works Administration (CWA) constructed a community center in Farson, Wyoming. The building then “burned in 1936 and was reconstructed with insurance proceeds and WPA labor.”
Living New Deal believes the community centers were located on what is now the site of the current Eden Valley Community Center, constructed in 2011. Google Street View imagery shows a building that reasonably fits the description of a mid-1930s community center.
