Connecticut CCC Camps
Time: 4:00 pm
Author and historian Marty Podskoch discusses his book “Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: Their Histories, Memories and Legacy”. A collaboration of the Salisbury Association Historical Society and the Scoville Memorial Library. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was formed in 1933 as part of President Roosevelt’s “New Deal” to alleviate poverty and unemployment during the Great Depression. Twenty-one camps were established in Connecticut towns, state parks, Workers built trails, roads, campsites, and dams; stocked fish; built and maintained fire tower observer’s cabins and telephone lines; fought fires; and planted millions of trees. The CCC disbanded in 1942 as men were mobilized to fight in WW II. Podskoch reveals fascinating stories of these camps, the men who inhabited them, and the conservation and construction work they undertook.
