Strange Building in the Woods


strange buildingThe upper peninsula of Michigan has some history that is nearly forgotten.  Modern day loggers sometimes stumble upon unusual artifacts deep in the forest.  This building was rediscovered recently.  It was used for storing dynamite for CCC camps near Nahma, Michigan.

The year was 1932. America was under the severe grip of the Great Depression. Millions were unemployed. Businesses were failing. Homes and farms being foreclosed. The Great Dust Bowl was sweeping the plains. No welfare, food stamps, unemployment, etc. It seemed hopeless for many Americans. Upon being elected as President of the United States, Franklin Roosevelt promised to get America moving forward again. Within months of being elected, he, along with approval from Congress, passed the New Deal Act. It would give many Americans promise and hope.
