Wells Junior High School – Wells ME

Description

Wells Junior High School (originally the third high school facility) in Wells, Maine was constructed as a New Deal project; the facility was built with Public Works Administration (PWA) funds. The PWA provided a $40,909 grant for the project, whose total cost was $91,890. The facility, located at the north end of the present educational complex, has since been dramatically expanded.
