The camp (6 buildings on 2 acres) was built by the U.S. Government briefly after Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) on April, 5 1933. The CCC was part of his New Deal legislation, combating high unemployment during the Great Depression by putting hundreds of thousands of young men to work on environmental conservation projects. The men stationed here helped construct the iconic Blue Ridge Parkway, along with many other public works, until the program concluded in 1942.
The property remained almost completely dormant until it was purchased by Burial Beer Co. in 2015. Over the course of the next few years, revitalization was completed on 5 of the 6 buildings. They now house a production brewery, corporate offices, and multiple barrel-aging facilities. After painstaking efforts to preserve the original structure, the 6th and final building became home to Forestry Camp.
