    From "The CCC Parks" by Bob Bowman:
    "At Bonham, the 261-acre Bonham State Park stands within the northern reaches of the Blackland Prairie, an area marked with grasslands interspersed by woodlands, near the Texas border with Oklahoma.

    In developing the park, the CCC used the rocky, hilly terrain of the area for erosion control and rccreational purposes, and built an earthern dam to impound a 65-acre lake. Buildings of cream-colored limestone and eastern red cedar were scattered around the park."
