DeSoto State Park's Civilian Conservation Corps Museum Dedication!
POSTPONED UNTIL A LATER DATE.
Join the DeSoto State Park staff Friday, March 22, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. for our latest and new endeavor! The DeSoto State Park CCC Museum, which is located in the "Contact Station" located at the original entrance to DeSoto State Park on County Road 618.
The DeSoto's CCC Museum was made possible with a $10,000 tourism grant in late 2011. Since then work has been ongoing; renovating the historic building, performing research, and preparing interpretive materials. Many original structures built by the CCC can still be seen today!
Directions to the Museum: From DeSoto State Park's Lodge - Take County Road 89 north towards DSP's Country Store, take a left just past the Country Store onto County Road 618 and follow the road 1.8 miles until you see the museum on the left.
