Austin in Travis County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Petriﬁed Forest Lodge
Rarely used as s construction material, petrified wood is formed from trees buried in the mud and silt of volcanic ash. Minerals and other elements combine to create glimmering colors and a hard outer surface. Salvaging the petrified wood from the vacant tourist court and replicating the design in walls by the northern driveway, this 1999 development project provides citizens with a lasting reminder of an Austin icon, the Petrified Forest Lodge.
