Fort Pulaski National Monument Restoration – Tybee Island GA

Description

"In the beginning of the P.W.A. practically every one of the national parks received financial assistance from it. Some of the parks and monuments were new and unimproved and others needed finishing. Among the many buildings were the Administrative Building and Museum near Hot Springs, Arkansas, the Administrative Building and Museum at Chickamauga, and the restoration of Fort Pulaski in Georgia.

This old fort was built in 1810. The project consisted of repairs and rehabilitation and provision of space for a museum.

The work was completed in July 1936 at a construction cost of $76,453."
