Notes
Survey number HAER AL-90
Significance: The Muscoda Red Ore Mining Community included the finest concentration of worker housing and company-built community facilities in the District. Two schools, a church, medical dispensary, doctor's house and teachers' cottages document company-operated social welfare programs of the 1910s and 1920s. The community also reveals a diversity of building types which reflects the hierarchy of the labor force and a clearly delineated, geographically separated racial organization.
