Montana’s Big Timber Pioneer newspaper reported in 1938 that the WPA “began work of rehabilitating Havre” on June 24. WPA laborers “will clean streets, rebuild walks and bridges and remove debris,” and would eventually “aid in repairing and replacing several bridges on [Hill C]ounty roads, swept away or damaged by the flood.”
