Get a glimpse into the daily lives of the "CCC boys" - although their work building bridges, fighting fires and planting trees was hard, many later called it the best years of their lives. Inside the Kalamazoo entrance, first floor. Want to learn even more? Visit our Civilian Conservation Corps Museum in Roscommon. This exhibit is included with museum admission.
