The Living New Deal Project

The Living New Deal is uncovering the hidden history of New Deal public works projects -- a legacy that lives on in thousands of schools, libraries, parks, courthouses, roads and sewers still serving people today. The LND is documenting the nation's wealth of New Deal sites, mapping them, and making the results available to the public through a website. Visit site »
