The federal Civil Works Administration (CWA) conducted much work in and around Georgetown, South Carolina during the early years of the New Deal. The Georgetown Times wrote: “CWA workers tearing down a house on Duke Street near Broad Street found about $75 in money behind a loose brick in the chimney.” The exact property is unknown to Living New Deal.
