the old structure had been used for different purposes during the early days.
Dan Nelson builds a mansion on the point of Petit Jean Mountain overlooking the Arkansas River to the east. Nelson sells his property in the early 1920’s to a gentleman named Stout, who turns the mansion into a hotel. Later, the building is purchased and donated to the YMCA for use as a camp until the 1940’s, and then it is torn down. The YMCA sells the property to Camp Mitchell, which currently allows “Stout’s Point”, also known as Petit Jean’s Gravesite and Overlook, to be leased by Petit Jean State Park.

Great picture and I love that stone masonry! Amazing that they chose to build it right there by that huge rock formation with the ivy all over it. It's like practically right up against it. Unless it's not what I think it is? Looks like a natural formation to me.
