If you don't know much about the CCC's, this place will really provide a lot of information. The volunteer of staff was very knowledgeable, and eager to share. It's a small museum, but packed with information and pictures. Very interesting.

While its not a big museum, it tells quite a story of the CCC effort. We have seen several of the CCC built places in Texas but never got the ful story. Well worth the trip.

The CCC has left buildings all over the Black Hills. This is an excellent stop before you go on to Custer State Park to understand who did all the fabulous, stone buildings. Nice displays and you can look up your relatives who may have served.

This was a cute little surprise on the route into town; tiny museum showing historical info on the CCC. If you have ever visited a state or national park with an old lodge, cabins, or picnic shelters, there's a high probability the CCC built them....More

The museum is tucked inside the visitor center but worth the trip upstairs. It gives you a history of the CCC in the area as well as personal stories and quotes from the men that worked there. We spent 1/2 an hour walking around and...More

It is a great experience to watch as visitors to the Museum find a family member listed in roster of CCC Men. Sharing and exchanging information is really interesting.
