Old Health Department building
The Obion County Health Department Clinic was undertaken in Union City, Tennessee during the Great Depression with the assistance of the Public Works Administration (PWA). The PWA built the “unadorned brick building for about ten thousand dollars” (Van West, p. 88). The location of the health clinic has since relocated and the building now serves as an agricultural extension office.
