Response to Cheaha's Bald Rock Lodge to Be Rennovated (?)


[Moderator Note: The original message in this thread was from 2001. This is an article that appeared on 10/24/2002.]

Cheaha State Park will receive $8.2 million to restore its historic forestry stone tower, cabins and Bald Rock Lodge.
The money is part of $182 million the Joint Legislative Committee on State Parks authorized Oct. 10 for improving Alabama's state parks. The money comes from a bond issue that was approved by voters in 1998 but that only took effect last May.

The tower, cabins and lodge all were built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a job-creation program under President Franklin Roosevelt. Over the decades, the historic structures have fallen into serious disrepair; one of the cabins has burned down, and the lodge has been closed for more than five years.
