Fairfield Town Hall Improvements – Fairfield CT

Description

In 1935-36 the WPA worked on reconstruction and renovation of the historic 1794 Fairfield Town Hall building, including the addition of wings to both sides of building; basement improvements and utility upgrades; a new cupola to replace an older cupola that had been demolished; and the construction of a circular terrace at the rear of the building.

The building presently houses an example of New Deal artwork, relocated from the former Fairfield main post office.
