Also see . . . Grand Canyon Civilian Conservation Corps. During the 1920s federal agencies, including the National Park Service, fell behind in providing infrastructure for increased visitation. The CCC helped Grand Canyon and other national parks construct streets and roads, trails, picnic shelters, campgrounds, and telephone lines. During 1933-1936 Company 818 worked on the North Rim during the summer and moved to the canyon bottom for the winter. During those years, young men in five other CCC companies worked at Grand Canyon: Companies 847, 2543, 2833, 3318 and 4814.
