Description

The WPA built the Greenbush School in Greenbush MN.

According to the Greenbush Local Government website:

“[…] Superintendent Marvin Lueck, President Dr. H. C. Stone, Treasurer O. K. Christianson, and direc­ tor Matt Kotchevar went to St. Paul to interview members of the educational department, Works Progress Administration (WPA) officials and executive council, and senators and representatives regarding aid to build a new school. Tom Hendrickson and A. W. Clay were also on the school board.

The school board decided to build rooms on the school grounds for temporary classrooms.

[…] the Works Progress Administration (WPA) started work on a new school in the fall of 1939. It was one ofthe last projects ofthe WPA. By the fall of 1941 a new school was ready to open.”
