The Civilian Conservation Corps was a highly successful New Deal program that employed many thousands of young people during the height of the Great Depression. Much of the work they did was outdoors in infrastructure projects throughout the country. In Tompkins County, the men of Camp SP-6, Company 1265 worked on sites like Enfield Glen (later Robert Treman State Park) where they planted trees, shrubs, and grass, did masonry work, erected park buildings, and built water systems, roads, and bridges. Their handiwork survives in the beautiful stone bridges that cross Enfield Creek at the upper Treman Park.
