STATE CCC MUSEUM ASSOCIATION, INC
TO THIS SITE!
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 the IRS 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
former CCC members wherever they served in the CCC.
organization's founder is Dr. Bob Anderson. The Association's board
meets at least four times annually and our general membership at least
once a year. We have a growing membership of individuals and
families, who reside throughout the 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, on the grounds of the historic Quiet Dell schoolhouse
conveniently located near Interstate 79 in Harrison County.
Interstate attraction signs are posted on either side along the
North-bound and South-bound lanes at Exit 115. One of two replica
barracks buildings currently houses additional memorabilia. The other is
currently being outfitted as a replica barracks. A 1931 Model AA
Ford 1 ½ ton truck is housed in an onsite barn.
Some of the milestones achieved by WVSCCCMA to date are:
Enhanced display areas and venue in the main museum
Productive meetings with local, county and state leaders
Establishment of a teacher student recognition program for
their CCC education work with implementation in Marion County (2004)
and in Harrison County (2005) and homeschool programs.
Launch of a successful youth and adult CCC education outreach program
The design and provision of standard teacher in-service CCC
curricula for social studies and history teachers
The design and establishment of this website to publicize
CCC achievements and its legacy to a wide audience
Establishment by the West Virginia Legislature and now
enacted into law via resolution 12, an official state CCC recognition
to be celebrated every year on March 31.
