School Construction – Bigfork MT


The WPA allocated $3,465 for school construction in Bigfork, Montana in August 1938.

Another article in the same paper in November most likely refers to the same school:

“Work has begun on construction of a home economics cottage to house the department recently added to the curriculum of Bigfork high school. The building will be of logs. It is a WPA project.”
