Mystery Park

I am in the best of both worlds for me: work that is fun.  This may look like an ordinary park on an ordinary summer day, but there is something pretty special about it.  What do you think it is?  I will do a follow up post after the 20th to fill in the details, but will post new “name this place” (credit to Preservation in Mississippi for the Name This Place) sites in the interim.

I am on the road, and at least on one stop (that is a funny story for later over on Lottabusha County), Internet is not always reliable, so be patient for my responses.

  1. Hmm… Knowing you is it a New Deal related place? Perhaps a CCC project?

      Why, of course it is, Thomas! It is Steele Park, in Bristol, Tennessee. As far as I can tell, all that remains of their work is the little walls that still surround the lodge, and possibly the amphitheater that was built onto a hillside, although the supports for the grassy seat have obviously been replaced not long ago. The old lodge may be encased in a renovation/remodel, or it may have been demolished. I have not gotten that far in the research to determine.
