Description

The WPA allocated $16,326 at the end of 1938 to make improvements to the Phillips County Fairgrounds in Dodson, Montana.

Gary Winthorpe: “These fairgrounds were actually completed in 1942, not 1939 [as Living New Deal originally posted]. They continued to do cosmetics and added an additional attraction. These two things took three years to complete.”
