Pawnee Municipal Swimming Pool and Bathhouse

The Pawnee Municipal Swimming Pool and Bathhouse were erected by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) and the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930s. The swimming pool, built in 1937, covers three acres. The Bathhouse was constructed in 1939 of native stone. The west side of the bathhouse is one-story and is typical of WPA-built buildings in the state, while the east side is two-story and more elaborate.
