Pawtuckaway CCC Camp Historic Site and Marker – Deerfield, New Hampshire

The first Deerfield Fair was held in 1876 in a different location in Deerfield, the first fair on this site was in 1924. During the great depression of the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps was created. Men in the Corps built structures and roads, carved out hiking trails and learned useful skills all the while helping the communities where they were housed. In 1937 the economy had improved enough that the camp was closed and the buildings and grounds were given to the Town of Deerfield for the permanent location of the Deerfield Fair.
