Preserving America's Natural Resources

1933-1942 Out of the economic chaos emerged the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The goal was two-fold: conservation of our natural resources and the salvage of our young men. The work of America's young men dramatically changed the future. More than 27,000 men contributed to the many significant projects in South Dakota and were able to help support their families back home.

  • From about 1933 to the start of WW2 the CCC played a vital role as the USA struggled out of the Great Depression. This little one floor Museum documents these times with personal notes, period tools.....  more »

  • Go visit this place! Great exhibits! Great folks running the place all volunteers! Wonderful learning experience! The Black Hills of SD would not be what they are without these hardworking young men.
  • Who knew how many different projects the CCC worked on, and at how many different locations? I never realized these guys were moved from state to state as projects were completed. Kinda makes you wonder why they don't use similar logic to employ those on welfare today. It would be a win win situation.
