A WPA press release from Jan. 1938 reported:
“Improvement of the grade school building at Black Diamond also begins this week. WPA workers will modernize the inside and landscape and seed the grounds and add other improvements, with the aid of $7,190 in Federal funds and material funds from the sponsor, Abel said.”
The exact location and status of the old school is unknown to Living New Deal.
