Look around and you'll notice lumps in the terrain. These overgrown foundations are all that's left of wooden barracks that once housed the men who built this park.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began work here in 1935, transporting men from Cleveland until onsite housing was constructed in 1937. The camps, called "S90," completed Paris Mountain State Park and moved on to other projects, abandoning this site in 1940.

Soon thereafter, American entered World War II and many CCC men joined the armed forces. Their time in communities like Camp S90 had prepared them well for life in the military.
