12 WPA Projects that Still Exist


Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, New York

This minor league stadium -- which has hosted the annual major league Hall of Fame game every active baseball season since 1939 -- sits on the lot where Abner Doubleday supposedly invented baseball in 1839. A century later, the WPA refurbished the site's existing field, adding a grandstand, drainage system, wooden bleachers, and new fencing.
