• Los Angeles Department of Water and Power: Mojave District Headquarters - Mojave CA
    The Public Works Administration funded the construction of the Office and Warehouse for Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's Mojave District Headquarters. The DWP's Mojave District was responsible for operations and maintenance of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in the Mojave desert area, between Los Angeles and the Owens Valley. The building is a fine example of the "PWA Moderne" style.
  • Mojave Elementary School - Mojave CA
    The Mojave elementary school was built in 1938 with $150,000 in federal funds from the Public Works Administration (PWA).  It was made primarily of reinforced concrete. There has been considerable alteration of the exterior and windows over time, plus addition of further structures to house the school, about which we lack further information.  The front entrance is a stripped down version of the original and the bas-relied and original doors have disappeared.
