COMPANY 3464

The Civilian Conservation Corps and Cumberland Mountain State Park

Camp SP-7-TN, Crossville, Cumberland Mountain State Park, Tennessee

     CCC company 3464-SP-7 was among many companies organized by the federal government to provide useful employment for thousands of people and at the same time to develop and save our natural resources.

     It was a cool morning on May 25, 1935 when twenty men commanded by Lt. John W. Howell left CCC company 1471, in Picket State Forest, as an advance cadre for the Crossville Camp. CCC Co. 3464 was officially organized August 2, 1935.

     The Dam and Arch bridge was started on November 18, 1935. It still stands today as the largest masonry project ever built by the CCC.

     WW I Hero Alvin C. York was project superintendent until he left in 1940 to advise on the filming of the movie "Sergeant York".

     After completing this park, company 3464 moved to Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson County in the spring of 1941.
