The CCC and Resource ConservationThe historic buildings below are products of the great Depression-era Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The WPA, the CCC, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt's other New deal programs provided jobs to many unemployed Americans. They also launched a conservation and resource management movement that set the stage for the state and national park systems we see today. The CCC created and improved many parks and recreational areas and conducted projects to support soil and wildlife conservation. Other CCC projects that you can visit in the region include Table Rock and Oconee State Parks.
