 DE SOTO, Mo. – Ancient Indian rock carvings are the highlight of Washington State Park. But a more recent form of stone artistry also is on display.

The stonemasons of the all-black Company 1743 of the Civilian Conservation Corps worked in the park between 1934 and 1939, leaving behind an impressive legacy of rustic stone architecture.
