Roosevelt Public School – Roosevelt NJ

Description

The school was constructed as part of the original Resettlement Administration settlement. Parts of the original school have since been added, but portions of the building are still original. The building houses the town’s beloved Ben Shahn mural, as well as a pair of intricate doors designed by Otto Wester in 1938. The doors have been removed from the exterior but are still on display inside the building.
