Description:Description:*Please Note* This program will be hosted at the Historic Hernando School, a WPA building currently working towards restoration through the efforts of the Citrus County Historical Society.

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was one of FDR’s most wide-ranging, yet controversial programs. Many saw it as a “make work’ program that did not accomplish its goals—the acronym was derided as “We Piddle Around.” The evidence indicates that the program was far more successful and, even today, Floridians enjoy the buildings and constructions created by the WPA. This program views the WPA and focuses on the still existing projects.

Free and Open to the Public. Please register for the event by calling 352-341-6428 or go online at
