Ten Sleep Fish Hatchery (1948)j
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted substantial improvement work at the Ten Sleep Fish Hatchery in 1937.
“The collaborative project got underway in May 1937 after an appropriation of $16,000 was approved. The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission supplied the materials while the WPA paid for the labor. Most of the construction was completed during the summer of 1937. After an additional appropriation was granted in November, work remaining on the residence was completed.
The hatchery would be the largest and most complete hatchery in the state at the time. It was officially designated as the Ten Sleep State Fish Hatchery of Washakie County in January 1938.”
