Beavers Bend State Park – Broken Bow OK

Description

“Much of the charm of Beavers Bend Resort Park lies in the fact that when the park was built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the materials of choice came from the land itself: slabs of native stone, and hardwood timbers thicker than a man’s chest. From them, CCC crews fashioned cabins, staircases, fireplaces, campsites, and even the Forest Heritage Center and Museum, which now doubles as the Beavers Bend Resort Park office.”   (http://www.mccurtaincountygetaways.com/beavers_bend.php)

    I’m looking for pictures of the CCC boys who worked on Beavers Bend. I had an Uncle who was there during the 1930s. My Mither is 93 and the last of a family of 10 children. My uncle was Jesse Tucker.
