HistoryArchitect George H. Merchant designed this 50' x 90' rectangular concrete outdoor swimming pool. It was built in 1936 with funds from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA). It had a shallow depth of 3' to an 8' deep end and was surrounded by an 18" narrow wall. An "L"-shaped concrete bench is located to the north and west of the pool. The pool has been abandoned and in disrepair since the 1960s.
