Moran State Park – Olga WA

Description

Moran State Park opened in 1921 when Robert Moran, shipbuilder and former mayor of Seattle, donated more than 2,700-acres to the state for a park. Most of the trails, roads, bridges, and buildings in the park were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the 1930s. The builders used native materials on site to construct the many stone and wooden shelters and buildings. The stone observation tower pictured is at the top of Mount Constitution, the highest point in the San Juan Islands and was constructed by the CCC in 1936.
