Luther Hill Park Bathing Beach – Spencer MA


Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers constructed a bathing beach at Luther [Hill] Park at Lake Whittemore in Spencer, Massachusetts. From a W.P.A. Bulletin:

Down came an old dance pavilion, 300,000 square feet of scratchy brush was cleared and for replacement the Spencer WPA Luther Park Bathing Beach Project now offers a sanded beach with swimming accessories, a 20 section locker house, fireplaces, tables, chairs, benches and a gravel driveway.
