Description

WPA crews conducted extensive renovations to Fort Humboldt between 1935 and 1938. From Wikipedia: “In the 1930s, local veteran organizations became interested in restoration of the fort. They took pictures, sent to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. for plans and specifications of the fort, and began restoration of the area and development of a museum. The job turned out to be larger than they could do, and soon the Works Progress Administration was worked into the project… Fort Humboldt was registered as a California Historical Landmark on January 11, 1935.”
