Historic Village Hall Improvements – Framingham MA

Description

Courtesy the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (F.E.R.A.), Village Hall in Framingham was “repaired and painted, both inside and out. New plastering was installed where necessary…”

In 1937 the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) replaced the electrical wiring, installed a cement concrete floor, and re-shingled the roof. In 1940: “The floor system of the upper Village Hall was reconstructed and strengthened by putting in new steel beams and columns, and a new oak floor was laid over the whole upper hall and entrances. The interior of the building was also painted,” by the W.P.A.
