Excerpt from the July 27th 1939 Red Bank Register:
“Nearing completion at Centerville in Holmdel township is a new public school, the construction of which is being done entirely by WPA mechanics […] The Holmdel township board of education is supplying most of the materials and the WPA is supplying the labor, sand, gravel and concrete.”

Today the building is used for professional offices.
