Front steps are all thats left of a house that sat on the bluffs overlooking the river. The house was torn down when the state bought the land to create the park. Today there is a park bench where the house was. I don't remember if it was this house or the one next to it but the renter didn't leave quietly. He didn't want to leave.

The structure in the photo was built to supply water for the club houses in Castlewood. The wood roof and steps on the side were removed when park opened.
I have heard two stories as to how it was filled. One that water was trucked up the hill. The other that it was pumped from the river or maybe they're both true.
If you have photos from before the roof was removed or info on the construction and operation of the water company, please share it with us.

My house the way it looked in 1978. The house was built in 1921 and sold to me by the original owner. He had stories to tell about weekend parties and how all the guys would sleep in the unfinished upper level while the girls slept on the first floor.
