Description:

The Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) completed construction of the Fletcher High School Gym in 1938.

The Waymarking site for this building says that, although the gym is still in use at Fletcher High School, it is now surrounded by newer buildings that block its view from the street. The Waymarking site goes to explain that: “At the corner of East Drive and Hornady Street is the Fletcher High School campus. At the center of the campus, behind newer buildings, this red brick WPA school gym and auditorium stands firm, anchoring the complex. It was built in 1938 with an appropriation of $27,270.”
