    The following are Kansas WPA projects: Wyandotte High School building (still in use), Gardner Lake Bath House, Prairie School in Prairie Village (the WPA school burnt down about 25 years ago, but as I understand it the basement is still in use and the entryway is preserved in the school garden), The Lenexa water tower (in use until the 1980s) has been torn down.
