Orange County Almanac

October 13, 1994

The Works Progress Administration, a New Deal creation of Franklin Roosevelt's first Administration, constructed some of Orange County's most architecturally distinctive buildings.

Although some local WPA structures have been razed, about a dozen have survived to become local landmarks and are in use today.

Fullerton has the most WPA-constructed buildings in the county, all designed in the ornate Spanish Colonial style.

W.O. Hart Park at 701 S. Glassell St. in Orange is home to two WPA structures: a Spanish-style pool complex built in 1936 and a band shell completed in 1938.

WPA buildings were designed to be both stylish and functional.
