1. Douglas Lodge. Douglas Lodge is the oldest surviving building in the state park system and the first to be constructed in the Rustic Style. Douglas Lodge was the first building constructed to serve visitors to Itasca State Park and was built with funds appropriated by the State Legislature in 1903. Attorney General Wallace B. Douglas, a pivotal figure in the battle to save the timber in Itasca Park at turn of the century, selected the site overlooking the east arm of Lake Itasca.
