Little Red School House (former) Improvements – Red River NM

Description

The 1914 historic school building in Red River, New Mexico—now a museum—was the recipient of a distinctive New Deal project: “in 1939, amazingly, WPA funds paid workers to raise the building made with pressed metal siding that gives it a rusticated stone pattern in order to construct concrete living quarters for the teacher as well as a furnace and storage area.”
