Peru Central School
Peru’s Central School building was developed during the Great Depression. Its construction was enabled by a $135,000 federal Public Works Administration (PWA) grant, which covered nearly half of the eventual $300,882 total project cost. Construction occurred between Jan. 1938 and Nov. 1939.
The educational complex has since been greatly expanded.
