Community Get Togethers
The history and legacy of the Pittsboro Community House is long and interesting and deserves a future post of its own. But for now let me say that this depression era community center has played host to high school dances, wedding receptions, concerts and many other events in its 80 years. Like other WPA type projects, it was a public investment which continues to provide value to our society. PBS Documentary on the Civilian Conservation Corps. Many of our state and national parks were established through this program.
