Granada Gymnasium

The Granada Gymnasium was constructed as a WPA project, to be an "elaborate and commodius structure." Among other reasons, such as over-crowding, the gym was justified because "this project is located in the dust bowl area of Southeastern Colorado. It is also that area which was flooded by the Arkansas River about a year ago. A large number of residents are on relief rolls and are greatly in need of work". This relatively simple building stands as a testament to the federal government's concern for the people of Southeast Colorado during such a hard time, and the uncommonly high contribution of the local populace illustrates the ongoing committment of the area residents to their youth.
