Many useful things were done in this coastal community whose population in 1930 was 2,135.
The 1934 town report mentions E.R.A. work on the fire station, and the 1936 town report of the Fire Chief requests appropriations in order to finish work started by the E.R.A. The identity of this fire station is unknown to the Living New Deal, but it does not appear to be the station in use now.
The 1935 town report mentions an unspecified E.R.A. project for labor and supplies costing $1,030.
In the 1936 town report 18 men are mentioned in connection with a W.P.A. road project. No. 1348 costing $4,033, and the 1938 town report mentions W.P.A. sewer and road repairs costing $8,785.
The 1936 report also requested W.P.A. help on Blister Rust.
