Fellsway Police Station-Area Improvements – Medford MA

Description

Description of a project undertaken by the W.P.A. in 1937:

“Fellsway Police Station; the area adjacent to the police station on Fellsway West in Medford was developed by the completion of a project started in 1936. A large baseball field and drill ground was constructed, the brook along the roadway was confined between stone masonry walls to prevent flood damage and incidental work was performed.”

The location of the former Fellsway Police Station in Medford is unknown to Living New Deal. Our map places this project at Hickey Park, which abuts Fellsway W and features a large field with baseball diamonds.

  1. This was off the Fellsway in Medford, opposite (approx.) Foss St. Long gone, taken by the construction of Interstate 93 in the early 1960’s.
