In 1935, the Public Works Administration (PWA) constructed a building of local stone as an addition to the complex of Cuba Public School buildings on the same block. (The other buildings date to 1905 and 1922. The former has since been demolished and the latter is now home to the Recklein Auditorium Civic Center.) The PWA-constructed building “provided room for a study hall, library, music room, as well as vocational agriculture and home economics” (447). Today, the building houses the Crawford Historical Society.
