Veazie Town Hall
Veazie ME’s Town Hall was built in 1938 with funding from the New Deal, almost surely the Public Works Administration (PWA).
Jean Hamilton’s local history has this to say: “The Great Depression hit Veazie about as hard as everywhere else. In response the town allowed residents to work on town projects in lieu of cash to pay taxes. The town voted heavily for Hoover in 1932 and even more heavily for Landon in 1936 yet cashed in on Roosevelt’s programs in building the Town Hall in 1938.”
