Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Barracks in Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. There were two camps on Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. It is believed that this is an image of the Bar Harbor Camp.
Originally called the Emergency Conservation Work (ECW) Act, on March 9, 1933 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called 73rd Congress into Emergency Session to hear and authorize his program.
It was designed to bring together what was considered wasted resources, young men and the land. These young men would work in National and State Parks to revitalize the forests and landscape that made up the parks.
