Notes
Survey number HABS WV-237-Q
Significance: The Civilian Conservation Corps garage and the Civilian Conservation Corps blacksmith shop are the sole surviving buildings of the Civilian Conservation Corps Camp Parsons, designated number 518, and one of the first camps established in the Monongahela National Forest in the spring and summer of 1933. This building survives largely intact, displaying its historic character except for some structural and material damage sustained during a flood in early November, 1985. From the closing of Camp Parsons in 1941 until 1985, this building was used for storage by the Parsons Nursery. Since the flood of November, 1985, Monongahela National Forest has used the building for storage.
