Notes
Survey number HAER VA-49
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
Significance: The design and construction of this structure represent a renewal of interest in rustic forms of architecture that also influenced the construction of this bridge. This style highlighted the use of "native" materials: readily available in the surroundings and natural to a park's environment. Much of the National Park Service construction in parks utilized this style of building. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) worked extensively in parks during the 1930s and early 1940s; Prince William Forest Park being one of many that the CC improved upon.
