WPA-built Mabel School, Mabel, NCWPA-built Mabel School, Mabel, NC
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed an eight-classroom school building: the former Mabel Elementary School—as well as sanitary privies for said school—in Mabel, near Zionville, North Carolina. It was one of many educational facilities constructed by the WPA in Watauga County. The historic Mabel School has since been replaced, and the location and status of the WPA structure is unknown to Living New Deal.
