Civilian Conservation Corps Camp on Blue Ridge ParkwayThis photograph is from the late 1930s during the construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The CCC was for young men roughly between the ages of 18-25. Many of the men who worked for the CCC lived on the parkway in camps like this one. The main jobs they did were tasks such as clearing the undergrowth. The old CCC camp is now used as both the park rangers' and maintenance offices.

The stone masons of the Parkway were some of the most talented in the world. The quality of their work is admired by millions of visitors each year.
