Hudson Elementary School – La Puente CA


WPA demolished five existing buildings and constructed a new one story, frame and stucco earthquake proof building for kindergarten purposes.

It is not clear if the WPA also reconstructed the rest of the school, perhaps after 1939.

    • Hi Darren, thanks for letting us know. How sad to lose such a classic Deco building!

    Our friends family and I all attended Hudson Elementary School in the 50s and 60s. While we all lived in the City of La Puente.
    Walking to school was a wonderful experience as I remember my younger years.
