All 17 schoolhouses in Framingham, Massachusetts were painted, remodeled, and/or repaired with federally funded labor during the Great Depression. The Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) was most likely the agency involved with work at the Hasting School.
The former Hasting Elementary School is still extant, facing Beacon St. (formerly Beaver St.) as part of a broadly expanded facility serving the Framingham Housing Authority.
