Biographical or historical data
Westmoreland State Park is one of the six original Virginia state parks opened in June 1936. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a Depression-era public works project aimed at employing city youths while simultaneously spurring economic recovery, developed the park, along with Douthat, Fairy Stone, Hungry Mother, Seashore (now First Landing), and Staunton River. About two million young men took part nationwide in the CCC during the 1930s. By the program's end in 1942, more than 100,000 CCC men in Virginia had built 986 bridges, planted more than 15 million trees, strung more than 2000 miles of telephone line, and stocked rivers and streams with more than 1 million fish. The nation's first camp, Camp Roosevelt, opened at Luray, Virginia, near Massanutten Mountain in the George Washington National Forest in May 1933. The Forest Service (in the U.S. Department of Agriculture) and the Park Service (in the U.S. Department of the Interior) used CCC workers all over the commonwealth on such projects as the Skyline Drive and Colonial Parkway as well as erosion prevention and reforestation schemes.
