Veterans Field – West Springfield MA

Description

W.P.A. Bulletin, 1937: “[T]he Memorial Athletic Field in the rear of King’s Highway School is rapidly nearing completion. Last April the field was rather ugly, idle land. Now there is a quarter-mile cinder track, circling a seeded oval, portable bleachers, a memorial plot of war veterans with flagpole, a driveway from the highway to the field, a football field, a drainage system and a fence enclosing the athletic field.”
