Lodge-Joyce's Park (Lodge-Eagle Point Park), Eagle Point Park; c. 1913 and c 1935; WPA rebuilt c. 1935.Originally built as a pavilion for Joyce's Park, the building had an arcade around the perimeter. The building was completely rebuilt about 1935 by the WPA. A platform was built with stone walls for the lodge. The lodge has wood siding in log cabin fashion and stone piers. Alterations in 1967 to the lodge included; construction of an entrance canopy, designed by Clinton architect, Phil Feddersen, and replacement of the pavilion windows with casements of redwood. There was also interior alterations including new toilet rooms. In a rustic architectural style, compatible to it natural setting, the handsome building serves appropriately as the lodge for the park. With respect for nature and with a prominent location overlooking the Mississippi River, the building forms an image and focus ideally suited for the beautiful Eagle Point Park.
