    Constructed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the late 1930s, the Manitou Experimental Forest Station's stone administrative complex north of Woodland Park is considered some of the WPA's best work in Colorado. The experimental forest continues to conduct research on watershed protection and resource management.
