Petit Jean State Park


The orderly room and supply room were enlarged. A modern bake shop was built so all bake goods are baked on site. The bake shop had a concrete floor and running water, baking racks, a large mixing bowl, and a good oven. (CCC Scrapbook, 1937) The weather has been the worst in five years, with sleet, snow and frozen ground interfering with work. This did not affect the morale of the men.

Unusual courses being taught include Bee Keeping and Squab Raising, with a demonstration flock. (Sam Davies Bi-monthly Narrative, February 14, 1936)
