The Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression and the Roosevelt Administration
The Civilian Conservation Corps provided employment for thousands of deserving men Company 810 came to Stapp Oklahoma from Fort Sill on May 24 1933. The men slept in 8 man army tents until late 1933 at which time they moved into 40 man barracks. Cedar Lake area parks and Forest Service roads were built by CCC Company 810. Fires were fought trees planted and conservation practices improved in the Ouachita Forests. Thanks to these dedicated men, what is now the "U.S. Forest Service Cedar Lake Recreation Area" and numerous other area facilities are still enjoyed by the public today. This Memorial is dedicated to the CCC and in particular those men who were in or mustered through Company 810.
