Side of Building
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) renovated a school in Cameron, Texas, ca. 1935. A 1935 Austin American Statesman article mentions the school renovations: “Milam county: Cameron Renovate school buildings and grounds In school district Federal funds, $16,136; sponsor’s contribution $4085.”
The structure in question was likely the school built in 1920 in memory of C. H. Yoe.
