Sandy Point Landscaping – St. Croix VI

Description

In St. Croix, the Civilian Conservation Corps worked on the development of Federally owned land at Sandy Point. The 1938 Annual Report of the Governor of the Virgin Islands mentions that the land “is being cleared of brush and planted in coconuts, and which is now extensively used as a recreational center by residents of the western part of the island.”
