Significance: The C.F.J. Pool is significant in American recreational, technological, and labor history. It was designed in 1926 by civil engineer Wesley Bintz during a period of major change in the philosophy of recreation in the United States. The pool exemplifies the concern of the 1920's that healthy recreational opportunities be made available to the public at large. Outdoor swimming pools, as opposed to indoor public baths, were relatively rare in the early twentieth century, their construction for public use becoming popular only after World War I. The pool is also significant in the community because of its association with the innovative labor relation policies of George F. Johnson. He was a member of the famous shoe manufacturing family which was responsible for the major development of the village which bears its name. George Johnson built the C.F.J. Park for the use of Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company employees, their families, and other residents of the community.
