park site owned by John L. Vest. Known as
Camp Bean Ridge to the 200 men stationed
here, it was 1 of 44 CCC camps in Kentucky
In all, more than 89,000 Kentuckians found
work and acquired job skills through the
CCC, which began in 1933 during the Great
Depression and ended in 1942 with American
involvement in World War IISide 2The mission of this camp was to conserve
soil and fight erosion. They trained local
farmers in contour farming, crop rotation
and strip cropping. They surveyed and made
management plans for farms in four
Northern Kentucky counties, as well as
planting trees and building fences. The men
also provided relief aid during the 1937
Ohio River flood and the camp served as an
emergency shelter.
