Stair, Lake Brownwood State Park, c. 2005

Built by Company 849 in the late 1930s at "Brownwood State Park," the sophisticated stair reaches from the shelter to water's edge with decades of weathering that serves to enhance its original design. An ideal recreational park structure of the New Deal, the elegant rusticated limestone stair uses native materials to strengthen its connection to the landscape.
