West Virginia State CCC Museum

Mount Claire

(304) 622-3304

The West Virginia CCC Museum was organized and opened in June of 2002. The museum is housed for the present in the old Quiet Dell schoolhouse in Harrison County, just off Exit 115 of Interstate 79. It is about 100 miles east of Parkersburg, about 110 miles north of Charleston and about 45 miles south of Morgantown. The schoolhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places and is open every day during the week, as is the museum. The CCC museum shares the building with a group of juried artisans who make and sell West Virginia heritage crafts.

The museum displays represent the work and depict the accomplishments of the CCC in West Virginia and also in other states. Since there were camps in all the 48 states with similar CCC missions, there is a national overtone to the more than 230 items on display. These items range from camp photographs to tools and implements used by former CCC enrollees. We have over 75 donors who have provided over 300 items for the CCC museum. We are extremely grateful to these friends of the state CCC camp museum and give full public credit for their gifts. These generous folks come from all over the country, from Florida to New York State, and as far west as Missouri.

Monday through Saturdays 10-5 and Sunday 1-5
