In 1933, Cook County was just another area of the United States struggling with the Great Depression. But a program begun by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called the Civilian Conservation Corps offered hope for the future of both Cook County and area young men. This episode remembers CCC work done in the Grand Portage community. This piece is part of WTIP’s ongoing series on the legacy of CCC in Cook County.
