1. Parsons Memorial Lodge - Architecture in the Park. The Lodge is a simple, humble, yet massive structure. The building is symmetrical and rectangular in plan. The masterfully executed rubble stone masonry is laid in a reinforced concrete core. The pink feldspar and grey granite stones for the building were gathered onsite.

2. Soda Springs Cabin - Wikipedia. The ruins of the cabin are located directly over the gaseous spring, and are thought to have functioned as a springhouse rather than as a dwelling, preventing livestock from fouling the spring.
