Betty Bacharach HomePhoto from "The Dawn," a New Jersey WPA publication; June 1936 issue, page 7.
Longport, New Jersey’s Betty Bacharach Home for Afflicted Children was constructed in 1924, before the Great Depression. However, the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed an addition, featuring a “new physiotherapy pool and treatment unit” at the site starting in 1936.
The old Betty Bacharach Home is now the Borough Hall building.
