Town Hall – Jamestown CO

Description

“In the mid-1930s, U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt created a federal work relief program for the unemployed. Called the Works Progress Administration, it resulted in the construction of public works projects all over the country, including several in Boulder County. Jamestown’s Town Hall—built in 1935 with local materials and labor—was one of the first.”

“In addition to the Town Board, the building plays host to musicians, school plays, dances, and many other community functions. It is the focal point for community life in this small mountain town.”
