Thanks to the assistance of the Lakeport History Museum, a former WPA built history museum was located. The WPA constructed the museum in 1936. The history museum was moved into a historic courthouse that had operated from 1871 to 1968 and after a vote, was refurbished and became the town museum in 1976. The former museum is now utilized as a law library.
WPA Project No. 65-3-3325, App. Date 12-9-35, $3,299, “Construct building for historical museum.”
