Union Free School
The federal Public Works Administration (PWA) provided funding for some construction at what was then Oceanside High School in 1935-6 (PWA Docket No. NY 3302). The structure has seen numerous large additions since the original 1934 construction. The New Deal project was likely an addition.
“When this building on Castleton Ct. first opened in 1936, it became the home of Oceanside High School until September 1955, when it became Oceanside Jr. High School.” (1960sailors.net)
