Constructed in 1937, the Abilene Pool Bath House was a project of the Works Project Administration. The pool complex was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2002 as part of the Abilene City Park Historic District under the Multiple Property Documentation Form for New Deal Era Resources of Kansas. Although the swimming pool was replaced, the rehabilitation of the Bath House included life and safety codes and ADA compliance improvements while maintaining the historic character of the building.
