School District Building – Au Sable Forks NY

Description

The historic Ausable Valley Central School District building between Keeseville and Au Sable Forks was, Living New Deal believes, originally one of several similarly designed school buildings built in the area as part of a New Deal project.

Their construction was enabled by the federal Public Works Administration (PWA), which provided a $178,140 loan and $56,289 grant, which effectively covered the entire $230,491 total project cost.

PWA Docket No. NY 2624
