Long Description:
Having the look of a WPA Project I contacted the Wall Public Library and they said that The Wall Community Library was built as the Wall Community Center by the WPA in 1936. Further research from thebeav69

"Some other interesting dates in Wall's history: In 1922 the old
town dam was built. In 1923 the first water system was built. Pipe
lines were laid and a water tower erected. The water was not used for
drinking but it was good fire protection. The water filtration plant
was built in 1942, and a new town dam in 1947. In 1951 a sewer system
was installed. Two deep wells were dug in 1961 and 1962, giving the
town an ample supply of pure water. The Stone Community Hut was built
with W.P.A. labor and federal funds in 1936. The West River Electric
Association energized their lines in December of 1940, replacing the
old direct-current electric lighting system owned by Chiak Brothers."
