Upper Jay, former school
Living New Deal believes this structure to be originally one of several similarly designed school buildings built in the area in 1934-5 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.
