Description

Details were completed in August 1936 for construction of a modern gymnasium for the Kingston High School in Adams County. The building was concrete blocks and 70 feet x 120 feet, constructed by the Works Progress Administration. Kingston was a rural community in the Natchez vicinity, and “badly in need of gymnasiums” (Gymnasium work, 1936, p. 2). The new gymnasium constructed by a WPA crew was “strictly modern and up-to-date” (Gymnasium work, p. 2). The school burned October 2016 and no buildings are extant.
