Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built ammunition magazine and made ground improvements to the Camp Conley in Point Pleasant WV.

“In 1940, the Works Progress Administration built a new ammunition magazine, modernized the buildings and grounds, and constructed tent floors. ” (McDaniel, “Camp Conley”)

It is possible that this is the site of the 1957 armory at Ohio River Road and University Lane. True extant is unknown.
