Ellie Mitchell Pavillion

Rocky Neck State Park, Niantic, CT  2015

I'm sure I've posted some pictures of the this building before.  It was a WPA project built in the 1930's and is the largest WPA project in the state.  It was turned over to the state in 1936 and was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1986.  All the stone and granite came from local quarries, and the timbers used in its construction came from each of Connecticut's state forests.  I'm not sure if it gets much use these days though, but it is an impressive structure.
