Lea County Courthouse

Southeast Region

Constructed 1937

While it appears that the funds used to construct the Lea County Courthouse are NOT the result of New Deal programs, the style is similar to that of other New Deal-era courthouses. The county was experiencing an oil boom at the time and it is possible that it helped fund the construction of the courthouse. -- Source "Public Art and Architecture in New Mexico 1933-1943" by Kathryn A.
