The CCC and WPA were two similar but different work relief programmes.

According to https://livingnewdeal.org/projects/letchworth-state-park-cas..., Letchworth was a CCC park, not a WPA park.

http://www.letchworthparkhistory.com/cccwork.html has more in-depth stuff about what was build by the CCC in the park.

Was all the stonework within Letchworth State Park constructed by the WPA or the CCC during the Great Depression? Or was the CCC part of the WPA?
