Description

The Works Progress Administration completed repairs at the Delanco school in Delanco NJ.

“Just when things looked as if they
might be getting better, they found in 1937 that
the walls in the· auditorium were faulty and unsafe.
They were rebuilt by the Works Projects Administration – more familiarly the WPA.”

The facility was located at Walnut, Hickory, Union and Chestnut St. It was removed circa 1962.
