A significant action of the First Seminole War took place not far from the park. Originally designated as Chattahoochee State Park, this historic park near the very southeast corner of Alabama is now maintained by Houston County. Created as a Works Progress Administration project and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.) during the darkest days of the Great Depression, the park has provided recreation for residents and visitors in the Wiregrass area for more than 70 years. So long, in fact, that it is now a historic site in its own right. While many original C.C.C. parks have been greatly modernized over the years until it is difficult to recognize the original Depression era planning and work, Chattahoochee State Park still retains much of its original rustic charm. Dirt roads built by C.C.C. workers wind through the park, crossing a natural stone dam built during the 1930s to impound the waters of Irwin's Mill Creek and create a clear, freshwater lake in the park.
