This article describes the first Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Franklin County. The CCC (1933-1942) was an especially popular program of the early New Deal. The CCC was a work relief program that employed teenagers and young men, often from cities, in national forests and rural areas. The program attempted to deal with the twin problems of unemployment and environmental destruction. CCC workers, living in military-style camps administered by the War Department, battled forest fires, fought soil erosion and protected wildlife habitats. The early CCC camps in Franklin county were located in state forests, although a number were later constructed on other public lands.
