The Inn at Cacapon

This Inn, at Cacapon State Park (near Berkeley Springs, West Virginia) was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps--as was the park itself. Today, the "Ol' Inn" can be used for things such as business meetings and family reunions, proving (yet again) that we are still benefiting from yesteryear's government investment and the great work of the unemployed.

Why aren't we doing similar things today, given that about 6.5 million young adults are neither in school nor working (see here)? Isn't creating useful public works better than idleness?
