The federal Civil Works Administration (CWA) improved Mattoon, Illinois’s old high school ca. 1933-4. A CWA document photo is captioned: “A crew of painters refinishing exposed exterior wood work on a high school in Mattoon.” The exact location and present status of the facility in question is unknown to Living New Deal.
