Rustic Reflections of Copper Falls State Park - Book


Rustic Reflections of Copper Falls State Park, written by Mary J. Schueller, contains the National Register nomination of the park site in Mellen, Wisconsin, in the areas of Rustic architecture, conservation, and entertainment/recreation-tourism.

In addition to a description of each contributing Rustic-style building, the nomination documents the land and conservation history and how the park's development contributed to the culture of the state of Wisconsin. Written for a general audience with a glossary of unfamiliar conservation and construction terms, the book will appeal to conservation history enthusiasts who want to know more about the development of Copper Falls State Park. The book can easily be used as a school resource in the areas of Rustic architecture, conservation, the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), and Works Progress Administration (WPA) work in the cutover of Ashland County, Wisconsin.

The book contains 110 pages of text, including 48 graphics of blueprints, Master Park Plans, historic WPA Federal Art Project posters, and original CCC photographs obtained from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. and from the Wisconsin Historical Society.Pub.Rustic Books, LLC.

In addition to her father's service in the CCC, Schueller's connection to the Mellen, Wisconsin area goes back three generations. She was further surprised to find in the DNR Land Records that her grandfather's brother sold land to the Wisconsin Conservation Commission in 1936 to add to the acreage of Copper Falls State Park. "It amazed me how each generation of my family had a connection to the park."

In the process of documenting the story, she accomplished her first goal by submitting a National Register Nomination of the original site for Copper Falls State Park which was placed on the State Register of Historic Places on September 23, 2005. Rustic Reflections of Copper Falls State Park is the published version of the National Register nomination.

Mary Schueller is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a certificate in technical writing. Around 1998, she began researching her father's service in the Civilian Conservation Corps where he served for four years as a lead carpenter and field supervisor. Schueller found that there was absolutely nothing organized in print regarding CCC Company D-692 and the two major parks they developed at Giant City Park in Makanda, Illinois and Copper Falls State Park in Mellen, Wisconsin. She realized if she didn't tell the story perhaps it would never get told and never be remembered
