CCC Museum – Stafford CT

Description

“In 1935 CCC Camp Conner was established at the present site of the Shenipsit Forest Headquarters and CCC Museum.” What is now the CCC Museum was originally the camp office and officers’ quarters. “The Museum is located in the only remaining CCC barracks building in the State and pays homage to the dedicated men who worked in Connecticut camps. The museum features a large collection of tools, equipment, photographs, and memorabilia from the former Camp Conner and 21 other camps in the State.”
