Front of present Redwood HS - Visalia CA
The Public Works Administration (PWA) funded construction of the former Sierra Vista Elementary School in Visalia CA. That building serves today as the fine arts and foreign language classrooms for Redwood High School (formerly known as Visalia High School).
The old central building of the high school burned in 1965 and was replaced by the structure show here.
The former elementary school building is part of the Sierra Vista campus of Redwood HS, which is connected to the main campus via a pedestrian bridge across the street, built in 1996.
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) appears to have worked on the completion of a stadium of the former Visalia High School and other ground work. It is unknown if any of that work remains.
