Fire Station (former) Improvements – Maynard MA

Description

The Federal Emergency Relief Administration (F.E.R.A.) provided the labor for painting the then-fire station in Maynard, Massachusetts in 1934, at what was hailed “quite a savings” to local taxpayers. The old fire station was located at the site of what is now a private business (as of 2017, The Paper Store) on Nason St. Work was continued by the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.), which also installed a new fire alarm system with new fire alarm boxes.
