The Works Progress Administration (WPA) constructed a community center in Strang, Oklahoma.
Per The Daily Mayes County Democrat: “WPA assistance has been responsible for many community center buildings in this section of the state. Shown here is a native stone building at Strang which is used as a school gymnasium and community hall. Many large gatherings are held here which otherwise could not be accommodated in the Strang neighborhood.”
The location and status of the building is unknown to Living New Deal.
