Sandwiching in History: Petit Jean State Park CCC Structures

n addition to its breathtaking vistas, Arkansas’s first state park is well known for its collection of Rustic-style facilities constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). V-CCC Company 1731 was assigned to Petit Jean State Park. The company’s “V” designation meant that it was composed of World War I veterans, so these men were slightly older and more skilled. From 1933 to 1938, the CCC built roads, trails, lodges, cabins, bridges, dams, pavilions, and other facilities at Petit Jean State Park. Many of these structures and buildings are still used by the park today and stand as a testament to the CCC’s superior craftsmanship.

The tours are available on all of the AHPP social media platforms and are archived on our YouTube channel:
