In 1942, the Washington Post reported the allocation of $32,650 to the Federal Works Agency (FWA) for new construction and improvements to the Francis Recreation Center, located at 25th and H streets NW.
The Francis Recreation Center appears to have been wiped out by the construction of I-66 after World War II.
