Moose Brook State Park was constructed during the Great Depression by workers from the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a work relief program for young men from unemployed families, established in 1933. As part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal legislation, it was designed to combat unemployment during the Great Depression. The CCC operated in every U.S. state. Young men from all over the country were assigned to the many CCC camps that were constructed in rural areas throughout the United States.
Moose Brook State Park is considered to be an excellent example of CCC design. The corps built park facilities and trails using the natural resources that were at hand. Cabins and other facilities were built with rocks and logs that were taken from the land surrounding their construction sites. The original park offices, built by the CCC, are still in use today. Other park facilities that were built by the CCC and are still in use include the bathhouse, campground and swimming area.
