Violet Avenue Elementary School - Poughkeepsie NY
The Public Works Administration (PWA) gave grants to the Hyde Park Central School District to build three school buildings: Hyde Park Elementary School, Haviland Middle School (originally dedicated as the Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School but later renamed when a new high school building was constructed) and Violet Avenue Elementary School. The latter is in Poughkeepsie NY, not the town of Hyde Park. The cost of the three historic buildings was $1,300,000, with $585,000 coming from the PWA. Construction began December 1938 and was finished in December 1939.
