Longhorn Cavern State Park – 6211 Park Road 4 South, Burnet, TX
Longhorn Cavern opened as a State Park in 1932, but it wasn’t until the Civilian Conservation Corps arrived that it became a place of exceptional beauty. From 1934 to 1942, Company 854 of the CCC worked to clear the cave of debris and built structures and stairs using native materials. The stone Administration Building was built in the style now known as National Park Service Rustic, and it is impressive. Rock walls and paths, and the stone stairs leading into the cavern demonstrate the skill of the CCC masons, whose legacy is well preserved.
