    Vista West high school in Bakersfield, Ca is the current location of the original WPA project. The school located on rosedale highway was built in 1935 and is still standing and in operation. It was built to help kern county cope with the incoming migrants of Texas and Oklahoma during the dust bowl. The WPA or works progress administration was part of the new deal under then president Roosevelt .
