“The Civil Works Administration was absorbed by the FERA in the spring of 1934, but it had several projects underway by that time. On land leased from Dr. J. F. Williams and G. B. Truka of Daytona Beach, it was constructing an airplane landing field about a mile south of Monticello. According to the News, the Kiwanis Club had long desired the landing field, “and now through federal aid its dream is about to be realized.” The FERA rented a warehouse from D. A. Finlayson to store its supplies.”
