A WPA press release from Jan. 1938 reported:
“Improvement of Dry Falls State Park, two miles from Coulee City will keep more than 50 men busy for eight months, Abel said, with the aid of $29,601.75 in WPA funds.
This allotment continues a project which is already 25 per cent completed, and includes the construction of water systems, roads and other needed improvements. The State Park Committee is sponsoring the work which a project supervisor estimated would benefit more than 100,000 persons.”
