Zion National Park Sign

Saves: 0
Check-ins: 2
Zion National Park entrance signs were designed by A.C. Kuehl and H.W. Young and built by the Civilian Conservation Corps beginning in 1934 and completed in 1936. Both east and south entrance signs utilize the locally-quarried red sandstone pillars with horizontal logs which support them. They were designed by the National Park Service Branch of Plans and Designs in 1936 and made by CCC workers from Camp NP-2. In 1940, the Park Service architects H.W. Young and A.C. Kuehl made an alteration and the south entrance sign was rotated in 1960 so that it stuck out of the pillar on the east side rather than the west side to accommodate larger vehicles coming into the park. You can find the sign listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
