Stone foundations on Hesitation Point and Pine loop
« on: March 01, 2017, 09:54:09 PM »
My daughter is working on a little project.  We need to know the story on the two building foundations on Hesitation Point.  Also the stone structure on Pine Loop at the top of the hill.  Sorry if this already answered by my searches have come up empty.  Thanks in advance and with any luck you'll see the project on youtube soon.

I believe they were originally built by and used to house CCC workers when the land was being converted into the park.  Can't recall where I saw this, but it was part of a Brown County State Park history article.

I was told the two foundations were used by the CCC workers for R&R rather than housing.

I would also like to know about the "stone structure" on Pine/North Gate below the North Shelter. Drinking fountain???

A call to the park office may get accurate info.

Called the Park last week. No one knew.  I got the email of a Asst Manager. Emailed him last week.

Key word here when searching is "Foundations"  Found a post from 2012 where part of my question was answered.  Also there was talk about cutting shakes. (Wooden Shingles)  I know the Brown County Antique Machinery Association has a shake mill. I'm sure they would be very accommodating  Now trying to find dates on when trails in BCSP were built

Just mountain bike trails or all the BCSP trails?

The mountain bike trails in BCSP were first ok'd in 2005. I can't remember if we actually completed North Tower in 2005 or 2006, but it was the first trail, followed by Aynes and North Gate, I believe. Hesitation Point was next. After that, I think Walnut and Limekiln were roughly the same time, then Schooner, Pine Loop.  Next came Green Valley and finally Bobcat.

I think we got what we needed. Thanks for the info.  Also the Brown County Antique Machinery has their show in May.  If you need any shakes I'm sure they could help you out
