Springtown TabernacleTabernacle and fence
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built and completed improvements at the Springtown Tabernacle in Springtown TX.
The Inspection Reports indicate the perimeter stone and wood fence was constructed in 1934. The pavilion (as it is called in the NPS Inspector Reports) was constructed in the latter part of 1937.
There was no marker on site indicating that it was constructed by the CCC. There is a marker designating the structure as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark (2017).
