2019 marks the 84th anniversary of the Works Progress Administration legislation and today, many of the structures constructed during this time have fallen into disrepair. The Tonkawa Bathhouse was built in the late 1930’s as a WPA project and consists of the main bathhouse and swimming pool. The swimming pool is no longer operable, but the bathhouse remains in good condition, however vacant for several years. The City of Tonkawa is hopeful for its use again, but demolition is always a possibility with vacant buildings.
