Davis Mountains State Park Indian Lodge
From the Texas CCC Parks website: “An extensive mountain range provides the setting for one of the most majestic of the state parks and one of the earliest CCC projects in Texas. Work at Davis Mountains State Park commenced in June 1933…”[CCC construction at the park included] Skyline Drive, Overlook Shelter, two Mess Halls (both adobe; one used by CCC as recreation hall for a short time, currently a residence; the other currently storage), Stone Picnic Tables, Stone Fireplaces, Stone Steps, and Latrine.
The park’s adobe ‘Indian Lodge’ was also built by the CCC, as was a rest stop located just outside the park.”
