Delta State University: Outdoor Swimming Pool – Cleveland MS

Description

The Delta State Teachers College (now Delta State University) “…did add to its physical plant with the completion in 1936 of an outdoor swimming pool with $20,000 from the Works Progress Administration” (Gunn & Castle, 1980, p. 45). The pool opened in May, 1936 for the senior class party. The pool was eventually demolished, and the site remodeled into a natatorium.
