Hartwick Pines State Park – Grayling MI

Description

“Much of the park’s development came to a halt in October 1929 when the Great Depression gripped the country. Work did not resume until the spring of 1933 when the young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps arrived at Hartwick Pines. The CCC Boys did a lot of work in the park: They finished the interior work of the Memorial Building, built the two buildings of the Logging Museum, expanded the campground, planted several thousand trees, eradicated the white pine blister rust within the park, built roads, and added a number of visitor amenities such as a campground, picnic area and trails.

Thanks to the work of the CCC, the park was dedicated as an official Michigan State Park in 1935.”   (http://www.michigan.gov)
