Long Significance Description:
C-Camp Mess Hall has been determined eligible at a local level under NR Criterion A. Areas of Significance: Conservation, Recreation. As a physical representative of the Civilian Conservation Corp influence on the development of Denali National Park and Preserve.Period of Significance: 1938 - 1939. In terms of historic integrity, the site and the building possess the qualities of location, design, setting, materials and workmanship. Today C-Camp retains the footprint of the original CCC Camp and continues to serve as seasonal housing as it did for the CCC in 1938-39 and construction crews in the 1950s. The driveway into C-Camp, encircling the C-Camp rec hall, is essentially the same driveway established by the CCC in 1938. The frame cabins of Denali’s seasonal employees are situated around this driveway in much the same way as the CCC enrollee’s tents encircled it in 1938 and 1939, giving the modern C-Camp an appearance and setting which is similar to that of the original. The C-Camp rec hall is the only remaining building dating to the CCC in the C-Camp area.
