Then we come to the “Grand Entrance”, which is really the back door. Everything you see here was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1934-37: stonework, earthwork, ironwork, steps, flagpoles, and the building itself as well as the trees that were planted. The front door is inside the park. Photo taken May 2014.
