Municipal Building – Pleasantville PA

Description

Pleasantville, Pennsylvania’s historic stone Municipal Building was constructed as a federal public works project during the Great Depression. The building, which opened in 1935, is still in service.

Credit is alternatively given to the Works Progress Administration (WPA) or Public Works Administration (PWA), depending on one’s sources, though it is possible the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) assisted with the building’s construction.
