Terms Governing Use:
Biographical/Historical:     In November 1989, the Bureau of Construction, Florida Division of Recreation and Parks, and the Bureau of Historic Preservation completed a cultural resources survey of nine Florida State Parks constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1933 and 1942.  The survey utilized the criteria for placement of historic properties on the National Register of Historic Places as a basis for site evaluations.  The survey results compile an authoritative data bank that complies with both state and federal preservation regulations.
Summary:     This collection contains materials gathered by the Bureau of Historic Preservation for the production of a survey entitled "Cultural Resource Survey:  New Deal Era Resources in Nine Florida State Parks."  The survey deals with the following State Parks, all constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps:  Florida Caverns; Fort Clinch; Gold Head Branch; Highlands Hammock; Hillsborough River; Myakka River; O'Leno; Ravine Gardens; and Torreya.  The collection contains materials relating to the construction of the State Parks (1933-1942) and to the completion of the survey (1988-1989).
