Mondeaux Dam Recreation Area – Westboro WI

Description

This 6.1-acre historic district includes three rustic buildings, a dam and the surrounding recreational grounds. It was a joint project of the U.S. Forest Service, the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration. The work consisted of the construction of several additional features such as campgrounds and roads which are not part of the historic district. The buildings and dam are in excellent condition and appear almost exactly as they did when originally built. The district sits within a significant glacial tunnel channel and esker system that were created during the pleistocene. A segment of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail passes through the district.
