1926 – 1930 Non-Residential Development
The first wave of prosperity, 1919-1925, had prompted major commercial construction in the downtown area, and the same was true of this second phase of development. Generally, new construction was further removed from the city’s core. Two major civic buildings completed in 1930 – the Santa Fe Depot and Plummer Auditorium – were the culmination of several years of community planning and construction.
The effect of the Depression, which did not become widespread until the second half of 1930, effectively ended this era of growth.
