North Beaver Street Extension – Flagstaff AZ

Description

In 1935, the New Deal helped to extend North Beaver street two blocks to connect with the entrance of the new Flagstaff Hospital in the northern part of the city, which opened in January 1936.  The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) at nearby Mt. Elden camp sent a crew to help city workers with the street job.

The hospital has grown from a single story stone building to the large complex now known as the Flagstaff Medical Center, but the street entrance is still in the same place – though obviously repaved and probably widened over the years.
