Healdsburg Elementary School
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) helped with the construction of the Healdsburg Elementary School in 1935. WPA workers improved the playgrounds and finished the interior of the school auditorium.
There is a plaque put up when the school was reconstructed in the 1990s, but it does not mention the federal aid of the 1930s.
This building is presently one of two units of Healdsburg Elementary School.
