Barracks (Building 100), Fort Douglas
Fort Douglas was expanded during the New Deal, including several buildings and improvements to the water and street systems. The PWA funded the construction of large new barracks (building 100).
The CCC also took over a warehouse (building 101) and added stables and quarters along both sides. The WPA added several homes for senior officers (buildings 621-625 on the central parade grounds, along De Trobriand Street) and non-commissioned officers (buildings 658, 600, 664, 665, 666 on Connor Road), along with entrance columns, and other improvements.
More photos of WPA work during the 1930s are in the archives of the library at the University of Utah, but have not yet been examined.
