Home Farm (former) – Worcester MA

Description

WPA Bulletin, 1937: “A saving from one-half to one-third on electric bills is a saving in anybody’s household. The City of Worcester expects to save this amount at the Home Farm, where a new electric generator is being built by WPA. This is but one of many improvements made by WPA at the farm, where poultry houses have been built, new barn additions made, a new kitchen and mess hall facilities installed and a dam constructed to give a greater water supply.”
