The WPA moves a house
The WPA engaged in thousands of miscellaneous projects, that are hard to quantify. In the picture above, we see WPA workers moving a caretaker's cottage in 1936 at St. Mary's Female Seminary Junior College (this was a non-religious school, and a predecessor to the present-day St. Mary's College of Maryland).
How many work projects like this have been forgotten over time?
