This project involved the development of Tule Elk State Reserve, the construction of adobe warden’s residence and a garage.
In 1932 the state obtained 935 acres to establish a reserve for the preservation of the vanishing Tule elk. In 1934 the CCC Camp Wildlife Park was established under the Drought Relief Act, and CCC Company 1958 assigned to develop the reserve. The company built an adobe house as a staff residence and recreational facilities for park visitors, such as small adobe ramadas for shade, which were next to a small lake (Engbeck 2002).
