Carrabelle in the 1930s Special Exhibit
All month long, the Carrabelle History Museum will celebrate the anniversary of the original opening of the now historic City Hall Building, which currently houses the Carrabelle History Museum. Carrabelle’s Historic City Hall first opened to the public on May 2, 1938. This building was the result of a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project and was described at the time of its construction as “one of the finest buildings in the state for a city of this size.” The structure is a two-story brick vernacular style of that period. Carrabelle’s original City Hall was constructed by Marvin N. Justiss, a local mason of note who is said to have built half of Carrabelle. Mr. Justiss hand-made the concrete blocks in wooden forms. Each one weighs over 60 pounds.Read More at Carrabelle History Museum
