WEEKLY HIGHLIGHT

09/25/09

Millersylvania State Park Historic District, a forested tract surrounding a small lake in the south Puget Sound region of Western Washington developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), reflects distinctly the contributions of Despression-era New Deal relief programs to our social history. By 1939 the CCC at Camp Millersylvania had completed their work on the state park and had constructed seventeen large buildings as wall as many other smaller landscape features. Typical of CCC camps, designs for the buildings and structures were produced in cooperation with the National Park Service who did the majority of the design work. Millersylvania State Park is in use as it was originally planned as a camping and swimming, has survived without significant alteration, and is representative of the Depression-era parks in Washington State.
