Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 17, 2006):
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was an initiative of the New Deal Administration, which forever altered the relationship between the Federal Government and the American people. The CCC was a significant New Deal program that had a national impact on the American landscape. The CCC work projects included conservation, disaster relief, historic restoration, and national defense. The CCC camps were the key components in the success of the CCC program, creating the mechanism for executing its initiatives and providing a setting for the training and rejuvenation of the programs enrollees.
