CCC VETERANS MEMORIAL BRIDGE
In the summer of 1933, military veterans in the Company V-1680 of the Civilian Conservation Corps improved the banks of Allen Creek here, planted trees, and did soil conservation work on nearby farms. They camped at the old County Fair Grounds south of town. The CCC was a national work relief program during the Great Depression.
The marker is located on East Main Street / County Highway C, between Railroad Street and Exchange Street, at the Allen Creek Bridge, in Evansville, Wisconsin 53536. The marker is across the street from Allen Creek Gallery, 137 East Main Street, Evansville Wisconsin 53536.
