Catoctin's diverse cultural resources provide several vignettes of our nation's history in one small location. Native Americans quarried rhyolite for the production of lithic tools. A charcoal and iron industry is still visible today, along with smaller industries including farms, sawmills, and an old moonshine still. Historic structures and products of the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps, along with the site of our nation's firstJobCorpsCenter, are tangible reminders of the capability of vigorous youth programs to strengthen the nation’s economic and social fabric. The totality of resources found inCatoctinMountainParkreflects much of the early fabric of our country.
