“Pocahontas State Park is a state park located in Chesterfield, Virginia, USA, not far from the state capitol of Richmond. The park was laid out by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and at 7,950 acres (32.2 km2) was, at its creation, Virginia’s largest state park.
The park is the site of the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum with exhibits about the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps in Virginia. Located in a building constructed by the CCC, the museum’s exhibits include photographs, artifacts and personal mementos.”
