Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania

                S-112 Detweiler Company 1381

Company 1381 was organized at Fort Meade, Maryland, on June 3, 1933.  The 175 enrollees arrived at the camp on June 16, 1933, under the command of Captain Loren A. Weatherby.  The company then increased to 200 men, through the employment of 33 men from Huntingdon County.  The enrollees at the Detweiler camp, which was better known as the Martin Gap camp, participated in the relief efforts in Huntingdon and Smithfield following the flood of March, 1936.  One of the most popular activities at the camp was basketball (CCC Annual 1936, p. 165; U. S. State Camp 112, p. 3).  The camp closed on December 15, 1937 (Civilian Conservation Corps, 1983, p. 13).

 

The camp had two different company numbers including Company 1310 and Company 1381.

This hat belonged to Paul Dillon.  It was submitted by his daughter, Nancy Block.  She also submitted an interview Paul did later in life on his experience during the Civilian Conservation Corps.  You can view the interview by clicking on the link.

 

The officer's quarters chimney still exists as a fireplace, and the forestry quarters has become a private residence.
