While stopping off in Palo Pinto to photograph their New Deal courthouse (post on that later), I drove around the town a bit and spotted this rock fence with a WPA plaque on it. The fence was constructed 1935-1937, but I have not been able to locate any other information as to why–well, other than to provide work, but still, even then they constructed things that had a purpose even if it was just beautification. It currently encloses most of a city block which houses the old jail museum complex. The old jail was replaced by a new jail on the top floor of the new courthouse, constructed 1941.
There are many such projects still undocumented in the Living New Deal project. Explore your communities–they can turn up in the least unexpected places.
