Cottonwood Civic Center – Cottonwood AZ

Description

“The Cottonwood Civic Center was partially funded by the Works Progress Administration and completed in 1939. Local citizens raised the matching funds through bake sales and other grassroots fundraising efforts. The building was designed by Lescher and Mahoney, an architectural firm from Phoenix. The building is sheathed in river cobble and red sandstone. Wrought-iron hinges on the armory-style doors contribute to its sturdy, fortress-like appearance. During WWII the building was rented to the Defense Department to house members of the Navy.”
