The nation’s first CCC camp, known as Camp Roosevelt, was built in the Fort Valley outside Edinburg Virginia in 1933. The camp still stands. The CCC Legacy group has installed a new exhibit at the Visitor Center in the Historic Shenandoah County Courthouse at 103 N. Main Street in Woodstock VA.
The exhibit, which will be on display through June, 2018. Is free and open to the public. In conjunction with the display, two of the CCC handbooks have been reproduced and are available for sale.
