FORMER PUBLIC HEALTH CENTER, PUBLIC SQUARE, NORTHWEST CORNER: Public health was a challenge in Waynesville in the 1940s. The small village was unequipped to handle the massive population boom that Fort Leonard Wood brought to the area. This building was built with Public Works Administration grants, this $30,000 building opened in November 1942. The two-story red-brick building contained 19 rooms, two lobbies, four restrooms, and a large auditorium.
