JASPER, Ind. (WFIE) - A new historical marker was dedicated at the Indiana State Police Jasper Post on Wednesday morning.

This happened at the ISP location on Newton Street.

The post built in 1937 was honored for being the last remaining Works Progress Administration Post still being used by state police.

It was a New Deal agency that employed millions of jobseekers to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads to help the United States get out of the Great Depression.

The Indiana State Police opened Post 8 in Jasper in early 1938.
