Carol Taylor, chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, discusses the many Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration projects that were built in Texas, many of which still stand.  The CCC and WPA were New Deal federal programs established under President Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression.  The projects include the Bonham State Park, built by the CCC.  Greenville's Municipal Building was built by the WPA.
