Brown County State Park: CCC Camp Historical Marker – Nashville IN

Description

The site was originally the camp of Emergency Conservation Work (ECW) laborers. In 1934 it became the home of CCC Co. 1557, which was comprised of World War I veterans. The marker commemorates CCC laborer and reads “It was in this area that members of the CCC 1557 were stationed while completing many early park construction projects. Foundations of some of the building may still be visible.” The site of the CCC camp is now used as a picnic grove.
