Clark State Forest: Pine Lake – Henryville IN

Description

2-acre “lake” impounded by Earth Dam (N-S) with small concrete spillway. Small frame square building with hipped roof, presumably preprocess, SW of spillway. Small open picnic shelter with hipped roof, NE of dam (may be of Lake Vintage). Similar to known Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)-constructed dams, but records are sparse and conflicting. Possibly pre-New Deal. Possibly water source for nursery that had been established in the section of forest.
