We have begun a CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) project. The project objective(s) is to identify the locations of the camp sites in South Dakota. Our hope is to plot the locations (latitude and longitude) on a map. Additionally we hope to gather as many names of workers attached to those camps.
Peggy Sanders, author of The Civilian Conservation Corps: In and Around the Black Hills, has been kind enough to share some of her findings. You can see the list of CCC workers at the CCC museum in Hill City, South Dakota. Peggy has been working on that list of several thousand names.
Now another interesting element of the project. Mount Rushmore, carved between 1927 and 1941, had some CCC and WPA workers. We hope to identify them and detail their involvement.
If anyone has any information and/or pictures of those days in South Dakota, please share that information with us. You can use this contact form or the contact information on that page.
Thank You and we hope to hear from you!
