Long Description:
Living New Deal

"Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Company 1811 arrived in Mineral Wells on June 17, 1933 and divided its time between the park and the nearby National Guard facility at Camp Wolters. The company left on January 2, 1934.

The CCC built entrance portals, roads, stone stairs, a refectory, latrine and arched footbridge over Pollard Creek.

The state never accepted the park, and the city reclaimed the land. It was renamed Lions Club Park, then Pollard Creek Park and is now known as Texas Frontier Trails Western Heritage Park.
