“An old school building in the northern Idaho town of Worley is slated for demolition, but a newly formed historical society is scrambling to have the structure saved.
Catherine Morris told the Coeur d’Alene Press the Worley Historical Society formed this summer after residents spotted an article reporting the school district’s plan to demolish the run-down Worley School building. Morris, the president of the group, said the school — built in the late 1930s by the Works Project Administration, a New Deal agency that carried out public works projects using unskilled workers — is an important part of local history. The group would like to turn it into a museum and cultural center, in hopes of drawing travelers on U.S. Highway 95 into the tiny town.”
