University of Wyoming Recreation Camp (demolished): Main Hall – Centennial WY

Description

The Works Progress Administration built the university Main Hall east wing in Centennial, Albany County.

The camp had been founded near Mullen Creek in 1935 by a CCC camp (possibly F-36). The University of Wyoming later used the facility as a recreation camp. During WWII, the camp was used by the Army and Air Force.

The facility has been demolished. The former location and condition of this facility is unknown to the Living New Deal.
