Fremont Elementary School – Riverside CA

Description

A $40,000 building was built at Fremont Elementary School under the WPA, the most extensive work done on any Riverside school.

In the field of education, WPA relief was limited to repair and construction work. The WPA did work on seventeen Riverside area schools, with such tasks as painting Lincoln Elementary School, improving the Bryant Elementary School playgrounds, and rebuilding the Riverside City College chemistry lab.

It appears from Google photos that the building constructed by the WPA is no longer extant. Newer looking buildings comprise the elementary school today.
