Catoctin Mountain Park – Thurmont MD

Description

From the National Park Service website for Catoctin Mountain Park:

“President Franklin D. Roosevelt created programs to give people a chance to rebuild their lives from the Great Depression. The Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps gave this land a second opportunity and through re-growth, a new role as a recreation area (http://www.nps.gov/cato/index.htm)…

Historic structures and products of the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps, along with the site of our nation’s first Job Corps Center, are tangible reminders of the capability of vigorous youth programs to strengthen the nation’s economic and social fabric. The totality of resources found in Catoctin Mountain Park reflects much of the early fabric of our country.
