Explore the unique history of the CCC-built "Keeper's Cottage" at the El Camino Real Visitors Center and learn the fascinating story behind this beautiful building.

See why the First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, paid a visit to and sang the praises of this "architectural gem." The Keeper's Cottage, now called El Camino Real de los Tejas Visitors Center, served both as a functioning home and as a practice template for reconstructing the Spanish Colonial detail and design of Mission Espiritu Santo. Get a better understanding of the challenges faced and overcome by CCC Company 3822-V and see where the mission reconstruction began at this newly-renovated, remarkable building!

Tour takes place at the El Camino Real de los Tejas Visitors Center. (From the park, turn left on US-183; Visitors Center is about 0.3 miles down on the right, just past the ballpark.)

Tour and entrance to the Visitors Center are free.
