Cavern Entrance, Longhorn Cavern State Park, December 20, 1935

M. E. DeLonge drafted this preliminary layout plan of the area development around the cavern entrance. The plan set the administration building and the overlook shelter (right side of drawing) along a main axis that crosses the center of the natural bridge located between the cave openings. The plan gained the approval of the NPS inspectors and State Parks Board officials; the subsequent design of the complex followed this plan.
