A '61 recalls: "If I remember correctly, there was a plaque or marker in front of the building that said it had been built by the WPA or one of the other New Deal agencies. When we arrived in the fall of '49, a new wing with four new classrooms was being finished. A lot of the neighborhood was built in the '30's, but much of it was post-war, too. Where I lived, a few blocks west, was on a entire street of new 2-bedroom frame houses like the one in the photo, bought by our parents on the GI Bill."
