Camp Misty Mount Historic District

Camp Misty Mount is located in Catoctin Mountain Park near Thurmont, Maryland. The camp was built by the Works Progress Administration labor program in the development of what was then known as the Catoctin Mountain Recreational Development Area, and comprises 35 rustic log buildings including sleeping cabins, administrative buildings and lodges. All were built between 1935 and 1938. The buildings are a simplified version of the National Park Service Rustic style. Misty Mount is used as a public cabin-camping facility.

Misty Mount is also known as Camp 1: Camp 2 is Camp Greentop and Camp 3, originally called Camp Hi-Catoctin and located at a much higher elevation, became Camp David.

Famous quotes containing the words district, historic, camp, misty and/or mount:

    Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Never is a historic deed already completed when it is done but always only when it is handed down to posterity. What we call “history” by no means represents the sum total of all significant deeds.... World history ... only comprises that tiny lighted sector which chanced to be placed in the spotlight by poetic or scholarly depictions.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    Men consort in camp and town
    But the poet dwells alone.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Night’s candles are burnt out, and jocund day
    Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops.
    I must be gone and live, or stay and die.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A land of meanness, sophistry and mist.
    Each breeze from foggy mount and marshy plain
    Dilutes with drivel every drizzly brain.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
