Significance: The wash house, built in 1939, was the only nursery building constructed by the members of Camp Parsons Civilian Conservation Corps Camp, according to John King. This building provided larger locker room facilities for the 65 acre nursery than had been provided by the original wash house. It also provided a basement room for seed stratification.
