“Making the project possible was a bequest of $70,000 in the will of (late) Sophia Nolte Pullar. Her funds were largely used to build the Pullar” Community Building “in 1939 as a … Public Works Administration project. The Pullar is one of the oldest artificial ice rinks still in operation in the United States.”
The P.W.A. supplied an $81,818 grant for the project, whose total cost was $164,653.
