What was then known as the Naval Training Station and Naval Hospital North Chicago, Illinois was improved as part of Federal Project F-77 by the federal Civil Works Administration (CWA).
“Among the accomplishments were the removal of 125 cottonwood trees, the roots of which had caused serious damage to the sewer system; the overhaul of water pumps at the main power plant; the painting of interior and exterior steel work at the power plant; electric wiring; and numerous minor repairs to the walks, buildings, and grounds.”
