The Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted numerous sidewalk, curb, road, and other infrastructure projects in West St. Paul, Minnesota. Among the evidence for such projects:
On Gorman there’s a sidewalk slab with a 1941 WPA stamp.
A map as part of the source, The WPA in West St. Paul presents the location and an image of the stamps, which appears to be located at about 1088 Gorman Ave.
Furthermore, “According to a Dakota County Historical Society article, there’s a stretch of sidewalk at Haskell and Gorman Avenues that the WPA built in 1937—but no handy stamps to confirm that info.”
