STATE CCC MUSEUM ASSOCIATION, INC
TO THIS SITE!
The WVSCCCMA was
chartered as a West Virginia
corporation in July of 2002. In June the
following year, the Association received the 501(c) 3 designation from
as a tax-exempt, public charitable organization. WVSCCCMA's major
objective is to promote
the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) of the "Great
Depression" days and to recognize the many achievements of the
CCC members wherever they served in the CCC.
president and founder is Dr. Bob Anderson. Mr. Ivan L. Austin
is vice president. Other board members include Shirley Bingman, Charles
Harlen Frederick, Rita Dale, Beverly Miller, Janie Hedrick, Alvin Goff,
Zelma Price, Dr. Francis Gilmore and David Cain. The
Association's board meets at least
annually and our general membership at least once a year. We have
growing membership of individuals and families, who reside
eastern US, ranging from Florida
to New Jersey
and west, to St Louis.
Since the program thrust
of WVSCCCMA is public education, we operate and
manage a state CCC camp museum. The museum is located on a two acre M/L
site, a park
like setting, in a historic schoolhouse conveniently located
79 in Harrison County.
Interstate attraction signs are posted on either side along the
and South-bound lanes at Exit 115. One of our immediate goals is
necessary funding for a new replica barracks building to be constructed
