Pulliam Community Building – Loveland CO

Description

“Pulliam wanted to give Loveland a meeting place ‘solely for community purposes.’ In 1936, he and Lillian donated the land and $20,000 to build the Pulliam. The 20,000-square-foot building was built by 100 workers paid by the Works Progress Administration, a Federal jobs program.
The Great Depression had hit Colorado hard.

‘People were unemployed and hungry,’ said Wallower. ‘Men rode the train from town to town, looking for work. The construction of the Pulliam Building was great for Loveland because it gave people jobs.'”   (http://www.pulliambuilding.org/)
