Description

Located on the outskirts of the Sequoia National Park, Camp Salt Creek was constructed on October 12, 1937 by Company 5449, SNP-10. The type of work done at Camp Salt Creek was fire prevention, construction of horse and truck trails, highway maintenance, & building and maintaining communication systems. Company 5449 of note captured 117 rattlesnakes that were sent to the Biological Survey in Washington DC.

The Company was originally formed in May 1936 at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. After training, moved to West Augusta Virginia May 27, 1937 to take over Camp NF-3-VA from the 2357th Company in Ramsey’s Draft in George Washington National Forest in the Allegheny Mountains near the site of a major Civil War battle.

The location of the camp was made possible with the help of a staffer at the St. Andrews Catholic retreat although personal investigation will be required since she was guessing based on her time living in the area.
