Ever wonder why so many park buildings share the same look? That style — rendered in stone and wood to help the structures complement their natural surroundings — is called "parkitecture" and it became the hallmark of the Civilian Conservation Corps, of CCC, in the 1930s.

During the Great Depression, New Deal programs lie the CCC eased unemployment and created healthy, affordable recreation sites for cash-strapped Americans. The CCC used local lumber and rock to build seventeen South Carolina State Parks, including Table Rock, all of which still offer relaxation in a natural setting.
