Camp Preston HuntEntrance portal
Camp Preston Hunt is a Boy Scout Camp originally built on 200 acres of donated land in Texarkana, Arkansas. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) cleared the land and built cabins, a dining hall and a picnic shelter. The WPA employed over 1000 workers who were paid fifty cents a day. A plaque on the grounds identifies the camp as WPA Project 2355.
