Abstract:

Paper (including blueline, blueprint, and tracing and coated papers), and linen maps, architectural plans, and drawings detailing the park's topography, general layout, roads and trails, bridges, tree plantings, vegetation, water and sewage systems, telephone lines, fire plans, signage and markers, parking areas, and existing and proposed buildings, including observation towers. Included are base and ownership maps, site plans, and development studies. A few items were created by the National Park Service in conjunction with the ECW [Emergency Conservation Work] or the Minnesota Conservation Commission.

Areas of the park with large groups of materials include the Alton Heights Tower, Douglas Lodge and dormitory/bunk house, campground, east contact station, Elk Lake Camp, Forest Inn, Mississippi River headwaters area, Squaw Lake Group Camp, shop area, the University of Minnesota Forestry and Biological Station, Wilderness Drive, and headquarters area, with picnic grounds and bathhouse/shelter. Several plans also document Civilian Conservation Corps' projects in the parkand the Itasca State Park School of Forestry bunk and cook houses.

Some of these items were created under the Department of Natural Resources' predecessor, the Department of Conservation (1931-1971).
