Constructing a Rock Roadway Retaining Wall, Big Spring State Park, c. 1934

Enrollees in CCC Company 1857 were tasked with building a park atop Scenic Mountain in one year.  To add to the difficulty, they had to transport the heavy rocks—for the roadway's retaining walls and the buildings—from the main quarry which lay on the western rim of the mountain almost 1½ miles away from the park entrance.
