Road Development – Lawrence Township NY

Description

The Massena Observer wrote in 1938 that the vast majority of municipalities in St. Lawrence County, New York had sponsored relief projects with the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA). Among the towns in which the WPA had worked to ‘reconstruct’ roads was Lawrence (not to be confused with the Nassau County town of the same name).
