Elizabethville CCC Camp Emblem (1933-1937)

The bill authorizing the creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps was signed by FDR on March 31, 1933. Pennsylvania had the second largest number of camps and enrollees in the country. Young and unemployed men were tasked with conservation duties that were much-needed in Pennsylvania after decades of destructive logging practices. The program was designed such that men would send money back home to their families.
