Jackson Zoo – Jackson MS

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed buildings at the Jackson Zoological park in Mississippi. Several newer buildings are attributed to the WPA by some sources; however, the only ones documented WPA structures are the zoo’s former rhinoceros house, old concession stand, and old restrooms.
