  • Bathhouse (Photograph by Steve C. Martens)

Three blocks from the Civic Auditorium (MT7) is another distinctive fieldstone building constructed with WPA funding. The bathhouse (changing rooms, but historically referred to as a bathhouse) is a single-story gable-roofed building with tapered timber lintels over the operable clerestory windows and a cedar-shingle roof. The pool is still in active use.
