Ranger Station (demolished) – Fountain Springs CA

Description

The Pixley Enterprise reported in 1938 that a Ranger Station had been built in Fountain Springs, at the head of the road to California Hot Springs. The building was made of adobe brick in old California Ranch style. It was a joint project of the Civilian Conservation Corps CCC), National Youth Administration (NYA) and state workers.

We have not been able to locate this building and presume that it has disappeared.
