Completed by the Works Progress Administration in 1937, this interesting castle is on the grounds of the Washington Park Zoo, Michigan City, Indiana. The 309th Engineer Regiment, 84th Division, a World War I unit, placed a plaque on the building. It reads:

In grateful appreciation to the
people of Michigan City
for having erected this
Engineer Castle
for over one hundred years
the official insignia of the
Corps of Engineers
United States Army
