What makes the Cabin Camps historic?

Four of the five cabin camps in Prince William Forest Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each camp is composed of wood, stone, and brick structures constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration workers of the Great Depression. The camps were built as summer camps that the government hoped would instill the poor children of Washington, DC with the 'character and health-building' benefits of the great outdoors. In World War II, the camps were used by the Office of Strategic Services as a spy training area.
