  • Red Rocks Civilian Conservation Corps Camp (Tom Noel)

About 125 young men, the CCC laborers who constructed Red Rocks, lived here in what is now one of the nation's best-preserved CCC camps. The simple frame cottages and barracks are still used to house Denver Parks and Recreation employees working at nearby Red Rocks Amphitheater, as well as a small CCC museum.
