CCC - Civilian Conservation Corps
March 31, 1933 to June 30, 1942

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was established by the 73rd Congress in order to put young men to work restoring the natural resources of this country during the economic depression of the 1930s. It is estimated that the CCC planted over three billion trees in addition to construction parks, bridges, dams, and trails.

Between 1933 and 1939 this area served as the living quarters for the District “I” Supply Company of Fort Moultrie, SC. The camp received and distributed supplies to the various camps throughout the southeastern United States. This sign serves as a tribute to the men stationed on Sullivan’s Island serving the country during a very difficult period in American history.
