Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) conducted extensive development work at Grand Canyon Village, 1933-37, including the rock walls and pillars at the bottom of Navajo Street.

The National Park Service CCC Walking Tour adds these details: “The CCC constructed these rock pillars and walls in 1934 as a visual barrier between the public area and the residential area up Navajo Street. Historians believe that this is CCC work, although documentation is lacking. The recessed cement between the stones was a common CCC technique. Civilian Conservation Corps rock work has proven to be durable. Notice the extensive growth of lichens on the stone—a clue to the age of these structures.

Civilian Conservation Corps workers accomplished many of the improvements in this vicinity in 1935—curbing, landscaping, culverts, and headwalls.”
