Maydelle CCC Camp – Maydelle TX

Description

The town of Maydell “…developed on the rail line that ran between Rusk and Palestine, and in 1933 a forest conservation camp under the auspices of the Federal Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was established here. The camp was closed in 1937, but the benefits of its programs are still evident in the I. D. Fairchild State Forest, now a wildlife sanctuary.”   (http://atlas.thc.state.tx.us)
