Hammonassett Beach Improvements – Madison CT

Description

“The shoreline parks: Hammonassett Beach, Sherwood Island and Rocky Neck were all completed during this time period as WPA projects.”   (waymarking.com)

“Though the park was heavily damaged by the hurricane on September 21, 1938, the park reopened the following summer after extensive restoration by the federal government’s Works Progress Administration (WPA).”   (http://connecticutexplored.org)

Additionally, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp Chapman undertook “construction of a new entrance road for Hammonasset Beach State Park.”
