Memorial Hall – New England ND

Description

Constructed between December 1935 and September 1936, the historic War Memorial Building (also known as Memorial Hall, and now home to American Legion Anton Ulijohn Post 66) was constructed with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds.

The building was described in a Federal Writers’ Project guide as a “a modern, stuccoed MEMORIAL BUILDING, a community center completed under the Works Progress Administration in 1936,” though Living New Deal cannot presently confirm WPA involvement with the construction.
