Agra Lake and Park was built from 1934 to 1938 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration. The 35-acre site is nominated for its association with the New Deal-era government work programs of the 1930s. In addition to an earthen dam and spillway, the current site includes two limestone entrance markers, two limestone shelter houses, a limestone bathhouse, and two limestone privies.
