Black and White Photograph
This image shows the main entrance to the Big Bend Camp, the first of four to be established at Letchworth Park. Located near the Lower Falls near present day Cabin Area E, the Camp boasted the finest entrance of all the camps. The ornates gates were originally the main gates of the Glen Iris Estate! (They did eventually return to the Park!)
For more information on the CCC camps, see our Glimpse of the Civilian Conservation Corp.
