Description

The Civil Works Administration funded improvements at the Industrial Home School for Colored Children, between 1933-1934. The structure appears to be today’s Guy Manson Recreation Center, but very little remains (see here and here).

“Through Civil Works Administration assignment, some much needed work was done. The interiors of the cottages and administration building were painted and considerable flooring replaced. Some concrete walks were laid. A new cow shed was erected adjacent to the barn and extensive excavation for the replacement of the 6-inch water main was made.”
