North Carolina State University: NYA Buildings – Raleigh NC

Description

On 8 Dec. 1938, NC State College signed an agreement with the National Youth Administration for the later to build a training center on campus. The college had no input on the design or construction of the center, which comprised a group of buildings. In 1943 or 1944 the college took control of the facility, which was labeled “NYA Buildings” on maps from that time period. The center was demolished in 1959, and it was located on the eastern portion of present-day Miller Field and the Jordan Hall Addition on the NC State University campus.
