  1. My grandfather Antonio served in the CCC Camp and stayed at Owl’s Head, Groton during the week and went home to Marshfield on the weekends. I remember my mom telling me about his years there. I have some old photos and information that I was lucky enough to get.

  2. When was your Grandfather there? I have a relative who indicated his employment was there in 1940.
