Historically Speaking: The CCC and the Creation of a National Park at Fort Harrison
Staff from Richmond National Battlefield Park will explore the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Harrison in Henrico County. In the 1930s the CCC cleared the grounds and laid the foundation for what became a National Park. The presentation will include photographs and reprints of CCC publications, and a discussion of how historic preservation has evolved over the years.
