Cory Canyon Road – Hawthorne NV

Description

After constructing a road up to Mount Grant from Cottonwood Canyon, CCC Company 1915 faced “an even more difficult road building job [when] they connected the Cory Canyon Road at the Laphan Divide-Cottonwood roads. These roads were crucial. The town of Hawthorne and the then Naval Depot’s watershed depended on these men to make the road passable in order for the growing town to get fresh drinking water.”
