History Repeats Itself

"Responsible stewardship of our natural resources."

We learned this week that we are not the first to bring these words to life at the Carpenter's Cabin property. This phrase is pulled from a document on the Ohio DNR website, written by Daniel R Atzenhoefer. (Sources are provided below)

We've made it clear from the beginning that our driving mission is to create a sustainable, eco-friendly cabin from the outside in, showing guests that luxury and sustainability are possible while working within a budget. Our driving keyword is Stewardship. As a matter of fact, this can be found on our website: We believe it is our responsibility to steward well our God-given resources.

What we learned is that our property has had this same mission statement since the 1930s when President Franklin D Roosevelt and his congress signed into law the highly successful federal Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The program did many things for our country including putting young men to work while coming out of The Depression. CCC camps were set up around the country to build trails and lakes, develop wildlife habitats and parks, and plant trees, three billion of them.
